Beloved Grey’s Anatomy alum T.R. Knight is returning to the Shonda Rhimes world, landing a major role on ABC’s The Catch.
Though details on Knight’s new role are being kept under wraps, he is expected to appear in multiple episodes in the upcoming sophomore season, Variety reports.
This marks the first reunion for the actor and Rhimes, who created the long-running medical soap Grey’s, on which Knight starred for five seasons as Dr. George O’Malley. Rhimes serves as an executive producer on The Catch.
“Happy indeed!” Knight, 43, wrote on Instagram celebrating the news.
Executive producer Allan Heinberg, who develop the mystery drama, welcomed Knight, with whom he worked on Grey’s.
“Very excited – and very lucky – to be working with my friend again,” he tweeted. “Welcome @TR_Knight to @ABC_The Catch.”
Since Knight left Grey’s, he’s appeared in just a handful of television roles, most notably an arc on Hulu’s conspiracy drama 11.22.63, The Good Wife and Law & Order: SVU, so we can’t wait to see what’s in store!
The Catch stars Mireille Enos as Alice Vaughan, a Los Angeles-based private investigator who falls victim of fraud by her fiance (Peter Krause). Sonya Walger, Jacky Ido, Rose Rolins, Alimi Ballard, Jay Hayden and Elvy Yost also star.
The Catch will be return midseason on ABC.
