Gossip Girl Katie Cassidy - P 2012

Juliet Sharp is heading back to the Big Apple.

Katie Cassidy, now starring on The CW's Arrow, will return for the series finale of Gossip Girl, scheduled to air in December, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

She will be one of several familiar faces making an appearance on the sixth and final season of the soapy drama. On next week's episode, "High Infidelity," let's just say that several characters whom viewers haven't seen in a while will drop by.

Juliet was heavily featured in season four, during which her character had a romantic relationship with Nate (Chace Crawford) and was linked to the controversy surrounding Serena's affair with an English teacher, who turned out to be Juliet's brother.

Cassidy currently portrays Laurel Lance on Arrow, which drew The CW's biggest premiere since the 2009 launch of The Vampire Diaries.

EW first reported the news.

Gossip Girl airs 9 p.m. Mondays on The CW.
