Rosie O’Donnell to Return to ‘The Fosters’

Recently reinstated co-host of “The View” Rosie O’Donnell will return to guest star on additional episodes of ABC Family’s “The Fosters,” the network announced Monday.

O’Donnell will maintain her role of Rita Hendricks from the first season in two upcoming episodes of the show’s second season, set to air in early 2015. Hendricks is described as a “tough yet compassionate foster care group home caregiver” in the series, which follows Stef (Teri Polo) and Lena Adams Foster (Sherri Saum) as they build a family around Stef’s biological son and four adopted children.

The GLAAD Media Award-winning show from Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige is executive produced by Jennifer Lopez, and is currently on hiatus in its second season. It will return to air at 8 p.m. on Dec. 8 on ABC Family.
