Sandra Oh is returning to ABC! Oh has booked a multi-episode guest-starring role on the third season of American Crime, the network announced Thursday. This is her first TV gig since leaving Grey’s Anatomy at the end of the season 10.
Set in Alamance County, North Carolina, the anthology drama’s new season will dive into labor issues, the economy, and individual rights. The Golden Globe winner will play a social worker named Abby Tanaka who runs a local shelter for victims of domestic abuse despite indifference from the surrounding community.
As was previously announced, Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Lili Taylor, Regina King, and season 2’s breakout star Connor Jessup are all returning for season 3 of the Emmy-winning series. King won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie at this year’s ceremony.
American Crime will return to ABC in 2017.
