‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Alum T.R. Knight Returning to Shondaland in ‘The Catch’ Season 2

T.R. Knight is heading back to Shondaland.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” alum has booked a recurring role on the second season of “The Catch,” Variety has learned.

ABC is not releasing any details on Knight’s character or storyline, but the role was created specifically for him. The network has not revealed the number of episodes in which he will appear.

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

The Catch” showrunner Allan Heinberg — also a graduate of “Grey’s Anatomy” — added, “Shonda, Betsy [Beers] and I are beyond excited to have T.R. back in the Shondaland family — and on ‘The Catch’ in a role that was created and written especially for him.”

One of the original cast members of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Knight starred as George O’Malley on the long-running medical drama from the beginning of the show in 2005 through the fifth season in 2009 when his beloved character was killed off. He was nominated for an Emmy for “Grey’s” in 2007.

“Working with Shonda, Betsy and Allan again fills me with immense joy,” Knight said of his “Catch” casting. “I am heartened to be returning to Shondaland and excited to work with this exceptional cast!”

Knight has already been back in the fold of ABC, as he has a role in the upcoming gay rights event series “When We Rise.” This past pilot season, he was cast in an ABC drama exec produced by Reese Witherspoon, though the project was not picked up to series. He recently had a recurring role in Hulu’s J.J. Abrams series “11.22.63,” alongside James Franco.

Knight is repped by Rhonda Price at Gersh and Ashley Franklin at Thruline.
