Korean American Story Fifth Annual Fundraising GalaSandra Oh is headed back to ABC, but this time, alas, it's not for "Grey's Anatomy." Instead, the John Ridley anthology series "American Crime" has snagged the actress, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

With the series' third season exploring labor issues and economic divides, Oh will play Abby Tanaka, a social worker who runs a shelter for victims of domestic abuse. However, "American Crime" fans shouldn't get too attached to her just yet; the role is recurring, so we won't see her as much as the regulars and perhaps not at all beyond Season 3.

Oh's return to ABC is still a nice homecoming of sorts. She played brilliant surgeon Christina Yang on the network's hit medical drama for 10 seasons before hanging up her scrubs in 2014. Since leaving, she has turned her attention to film and theater projects, including producing.

On "American Crime," Oh joins a cast that includes Regina King, Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, Lili Taylor, Richard Cabral, and Connor Jessup. A premiere date has not yet been announced, but we can expect Season 3 to premiere sometime in 2017.
