Rebecca Gibney reprises her iconic role as forensic psychiatrist Jane Halifax in the Nine Network's HALIFAX: Retribution.
The TV WEEK Logie Award-winning actress will be joined in the upcoming revival by Hollywood-based actor Anthony LaPaglia.
Anthony joins the cast as the head of Task Force Stingray, Inspector Tom Saracen, in the crime thriller.
The mini-series picks up with Jane Halifax working in her new career as a university professor, after years on the police frontline. But when a serial sniper starts terrorising Melbourne, Jane is lured back into the field to help the police task force find the killer and save a city paralysed with fear.
As she profiles a killer hidden in plain sight, Jane finds herself firmly in his view.

Craig Hall (A Place to Call Home, The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Catching Milat), Michala Banas (Upper Middle Bogan, Bad Mothers, McLeod's Daughters), Mavournee Hazel (Neighbours, My Life Is Murder), Louisa Mignone (Secret City: Under the Eagle, Ms Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries, Rake), Stephen Curry (The Castle, The King, Hounds of Love) and John Waters (Mystery Road, Rake, Offspring) are also starring.

The show's original creator and writer Roger Simpson returns as writer and producer, alongside Mikael Borglund and writers Mac Gudgeon (Killing Time), Peter Gawler (Underbelly) and the Oscar-nominated Jan Sardi (Shine).
Rebecca reveals she's looking forward to returning to the role, which she first played when she was in her 20s.
"I am beyond excited to be breathing new life into Jane Halifax as she was and still is one of my favourite characters, and I always believed there was so much more we could explore with her," Rebecca says of the upcoming revival.
"Having grown as a woman and hopefully as an actor over the last 20 years I'm really looking forward to exploring Jane's world from a new perspective."
