“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer will return to the CBS series “Elementary.”

The announcement that the actress would be back on the Sherlock Holmes drama, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, was made at PaleyFest in New York City on Saturday night.

Natalie has a dual role on the show. In the past, she played Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler. But, in the double-episode Season 1 finale, it was revealed that she is actually Moriarty, Sherlock’s greatest enemy.

When asked about the possibility of returning to the show back in May by Access Hollywood, when the “Elementary” cast were prepping to shoot the Season 2 premiere in London, Natalie said she would be up for coming back.

“All I can say is I am on this 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, the show’s executive producer] 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.”
