They just couldn’t let her go: producers of The Office are set to bring back Catherine Tate for a recurring role in the second half of this season, BBC News reports. Tate had previously appeared on the NBC series last season as Nellie Bertram, one of the candidates to replace Steve Carell‘s Michael Scott. Bertram will be back, working for corporate chairman Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates) and mixing it up with James Spader‘s character.
For those who missed it, here’s Tate’s appearance on The Office back in May. The two-minute scene so impressed the powers-that-be behind the sitcom, they seriously considered the former Doctor Who TARDIS-mate as permanent replacement for Carell.
