Sally Field will return to “ER” this fall to reprise the guest role that earned her an Emmy Award.
Actress will appear in a multiepisode arc on “ER” as Maggie Wyczenski, a character who appeared only during the 2000-01 TV season.
Maggie is the bipolar mom of Maura Tierney’s character Abby Lockhart. She will reappear on the series in an episode scheduled to air on the Peacock Nov. 21.
Field’s most recent network television appearance was her starring role in midseason ABC entry “The Court,” which was dismissed earlier this year after struggling to find an audience.
Field, who is repped by CAA and managed by Judy Hofflund of Hofflund/Polone, recently signed on to make her Broadway debut in Edward Albee’s “The Goat” alongside Bill Irwin (Daily Variety, Aug. 13). Starting Sept. 13, the duo replaces Mercedes Ruehl and Bill Pullman in the drama about a man who confesses a barnyard affair to his wife.
