Last year, the 31-year-old joined "Elementary," CBS' Sherlock Holmes adaptation, for a three episode arc. She signed on to play Sherlock's long-lost love interest, Irene Adler, until it was revealed in the season 1 finale that she's actually his secretive arch-nemesis Moriarty.
Fans of the series could hardly expect the show to do away with Sherlock's greatest enemy so early on, so it's no surprise that showrunner Robert Doherty announced Saturday that Dormer would return in the middle of the series' second season.
Dormer said she was up for returning to the role in an interview with Access Hollywood back in May.
All I can say is I am on [the U.S.] side of the Atlantic. I have to be because of 'Thrones.' Shooting on 'Thrones' begins in July, but it's serendipity that I'm on the right side of the Atlantic in case Rob [Doherty] wanted to use me again. So, who knows? I can't say enough positive things about how much I enjoyed being a part of the 'Elementary' family for the time that I was. So, I would always be open to the idea of working with that fantastic cast and with Rob again, definitely.
