T.R. Knight Returns to ABC

Grey's Anatomy Vet T.R. Knight Returns to Shondaland With Role on The Catch

More than seven years after “checking out” (#TooSoon?) as Grey’s Anatomy‘s Dr. George O’Malley, T.R. Knight is returning to Shondaland.

TVLine has learned that Knight will recur during Season 2 of ABC’s The Catch, in an undisclosed role that “was created and written especially for him,” says showrunner Allan Heinberg. The Mirelle Enos/Peter Krause-fronted caper drama returns at midseason, where it is expected to again air on Thursdays at 10/9c.

“This has been a thrilling secret to keep!” says Shonda Rhimes in a statement. “One of my favorite family members is home!”

Knight in turn said of his new gig, “Working with Shonda, [Shondaland’s] Betsy [Beers] and Allan again fills me with immense joy. I am heartened to be returning to Shondaland and excited to work with this exceptional cast.”

Since wrapping his five-season, Emmy-nominated run as an original Grey’s cast member, Knight has guested on Law & Order: SVU and recurred on The Good Wife and 11.22.63 (for which he earned a TVLine Performer of the Week honorable mention). He also recently wrapped filming on the ABC miniseries When We Rise, airing midseason.
