A familiar face from Shondaland is joining her father on Scandal: Zoe Perry has been cast in season 6 of the ABC drama, EW has confirmed.

The actress, who is the daughter of Scandal fixture Jeff Perry (Cyrus Beene), has scored a recurring role. It remains to be seen whether her character has a connection to Cyrus, the new Democratic nominee for vice president, as ABC has not yet provided information on her character or arc.

This is Zoe’s third time stepping in front of the camera on a Shondaland series. She previously appeared on Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Zoe got her start on TV on Roseanne, on which her mother, Laurie Metcalf, played the lovable Jackie, a.k.a. Roseanne’s sister.

Scandal season 6 is set for a mid-season debut on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch the trailer below.
