Attention, "Felicity" fans: One of our own is returning to TV.

Yes, we all already know that Keri Russell is making her small-screen comeback with FX's "The Americans" (which premieres this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT).

We know that Scott Speedman's latest outing, ABC's "Last Resort," has already been canceled. Sigh.

And we know there may not be a "Felicity" reunion any time soon.

But the good news is that Scott Foley (who forever will be known as Noel, amongst other things) is returning to TV for a major arc on the sizzling Shonda Rhimes drama "Scandal." Foley, who also did a 15-episode run on Rhimes' "Grey's Anatomy" as Henry Burton (who was killed off on season 8), is set to appear towards the end of season two, in a role that has yet to be revealed, according to a report by

And he certainly has a fan in Rhimes. "We're so in love with Scott Foley," the showrunner said in 2011. "We would've kept him [on "Grey's"] if we could."

The "Scandal" gig comes on the heels of news that FOX halted production on Foley's mid-season comedy, "The Goodwin Games," after producing seven episodes, which may or may not air sometime this summer. To be honest, "Scandal" seems like a much better fit for Foley, who, while no doubt sporting some comedy chops, is delicious in drama.

"Scandal" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
