Ronda Rousey in Furious 7

Universal Pictures



WWE star Ronda Rousey is going to try out being a very different kind of fighter.

The well-known mixed martial artist has signed on for a recurring role in Fox's "9-1-1" Season 3, Deadline reports. Rousey will play a firefighter named Lena Bosko, a member of Los Angeles Fire Department Station 136. When a disaster hits, she'll take action and show off her courage.

Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Monday, Sept. 23. It will continue to follow the lives of various Los Angeles first responders. A new preview dropped Wednesday, and it showed a terrifying event: a tsunami. We don't know yet how many episodes Rousey will appear in, but based on the footage we've seen, it's clear they'll need all the first responders they can get.



Rousey is best known for her fighting, but she has also had several acting jobs in recent years. Her film credits include roles in "Mile 22" and "Furious 7," among others. She has also appeared on series such as "Blindspot" and "Drunk History."

"9-1-1" Season 3 premieres Monday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
