McRaney will be playing the retired Detective Hicks, who has come to rely too much on alcohol since he trained Officer John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz) years earlier.

Major Dad and Simon & Simon gave McRaney his biggest television success, but he has also appeared in Designing Women and The West Wing.

He most recently landed supporting roles in Fairly Legal, Jericho, One Tree Hill and Deadwood.

Southland will be adding both C Thomas Howell and Chad Michael Murray to its main cast for the upcoming fifth season.

TNT premieres Southland's new season on February 13 at 10pm ET.
