Julianne Moore has released a statement confirming that she will return to 30 Rock for the series finale, which will air Jan. 31 on NBC. Moore appeared in several episodes of the show’s fifth season as Nancy Donovan, a childhood love interest of Alec Baldwin’s character of Jack Donaghy. Moore’s run on the show ended when Donaghy chose to marry Avery Jessup, played by Elizabeth Banks, instead of rekindling his romance with Donovan.
“I’m in a van on my way to Queens to do 30 Rock,” Moore said in her statement. “I heard the news this morning right before yoga. I was just about to shut off my phone. Unfortunately, I knew the [Golden Globe] nominations were being announced, so I was worried.”
It’s a good think Moore decided to keep her phone on; she received a nomination for her role as Sarah Palin in the HBO made-for-TV movie Game Change.
