Rodriguez's role is being kept under wraps, however, Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Dan Goor previously stated that the actress would be perfect to portray a love interest for Beatriz's Rosa Diaz after the character came out as bisexual.

Rodriguez responded to Goor's comments on Twitter in January saying, "Um...can I get an audition @Brooklyn99FOX ?!? *applies lip gloss and puckers lips* @iamstephbeatz you know I'm ready and on the sidelines like Go Rosa Go!"

This is Us star Sterling K. Brown is also set to guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine's fifth season.
