The star, who plays Sara Sidle on the hit series, walked away from the show last fall–but she is now set to return for the third episode of the upcoming season.
Confirming the news to TV Guide magazine, Fox says, “The kindest thing that the writers did for Sara Sidle was to walk her out (of the show) in one piece.
“I had an amazing, beautiful, honorable, dignified exit.”
And she’s thrilled she’ll be back among her castmates: “I miss the people. When I left in October, it was so decisive–everybody got me a goodbye cake.
“(But) it’s a surprise for me to be back, especially this soon.”
