Private Practice alum Paul Adelstein will return to the #TGIT drama later this season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Adelstein recurred during season three as Leo Bergen, vice president Sally Langston’s (Emmy nominee Kate Burton) smarmy campaign manager.

Adelstein is currently slated for one episode, set for November.

It’s unclear if Burton will reprise her role, though given Leo’s return it would not be a surprise to see the Shondaland favorite come back again this season.

Also returning for season four: Fringe favorite Jasika Nicole, who plays Huck’s (Guillermo Diaz) estranged wife. She’ll be back in the Oct. 23 episode, titled “The Key.”
