Scott Foley has booked a return trip to Shondaland.

The former Grey’s Anatomy actor is joining the cast of Shonda Rhimes’ latest ABC hit Scandal, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Details on Foley’s role are being kept under the tightest of wraps, but sources confirm that he’s on board for a major arc to air towards the end of the show’s current second season.

Shortly after Foley wrapped his two-season recurring stint on Grey’s in late 2011, Rhimes raved to TVLine, “We’re so in love with Scott Foley. And we would’ve kept him [on Grey's] if we could.”

Foley’s Scandal gig comes two months after Fox prematurely halted production on his planned-midseason comedy Goodwin Games. Network president Kevin Reilly said last week that the show’s seven produced episodes could air this summer.
