The diva is back in town!

Bernadette Peters is returning to Smash this season, EW has confirmed.

The Broadway legend will reprise her role as Ivy’s mother, Leigh Conroy. There were no other additional details at this time. Vulture first reported the news.

Peters is hardly the only famous face showing up when Smash returns midseason. As EW previously reported, Sean Hayes, Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin, and many others are also joining the show.
