Grey’s Anatomy star Kate Walsh will be reprising her role of Dr Addison Montgomery in the upcoming 18th season of the show.
The actress confirmed that she’ll be returning to the Shonda Rimes series alongside Ellen Pompeo in a video shared on the show’s official Twitter page.
‘Well, well, well, would you look who it is,’ Kate said. ‘That’s right, my loves, Dr. Addison Montgomery is coming back to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital and I’m so excited to be home again joining Shonda, Ellen and the rest of the incredible cast.’
She continued: ‘This season — 18, whew! — Just wait until you see what she has in store for you. The new season premieres September 30 on ABC.’
Kate originally joined the long-running medical drama all the way back in the first season as Derek Shepherd’s (played by Patrick Dempsey) estranged wife.
She served as the neonatal surgeon for a number of seasons before leading the spinoff series Private Practice, which aired from 2007 to 2013.
In March, Kate said shared she would ‘absolutely’ return to Grey’s.
‘If they could get it done, I’d be happy to come back,’ she told People. ‘It definitely changed my life.’
Grey’s was renewed for season 18 in March after a tense wait for the show to confirm whether it would continue.
The happy news came just days after it was revealed that long-running cast member Jesse Williams was leaving the show.
Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC in the US and is available to watch on Sky Witness in the UK.
