Kate Walsh — who made her "Grey’s Anatomy" debut as Dr. Addison Montgomery in the show’s Season 1 finale in 2005, and later was the star of spinoff "Private Practice" — will return to "Grey's" for a multi-episode arc in its upcoming 18th season. 

Representatives from ABC confirmed Walsh’s return to the medical drama, but did not give specifics about Addison’s storyline.

Walsh has said in the past that she’d be happy to return to the show. 

Addison went from a recurring character to a series regular, and after the third season of "Grey’s Anatomy," Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator, sent Addison to Los Angeles, where Walsh starred on "Private Practice." Addison shares a history with the characters who have been on "Grey’s" from the start, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), her formal rival for Derek Shepherd’s affections; Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Miranda (Chandra Wilson), all of whom will be returning for Season 18.
