Kathy Bates is heading back to Mike & Molly.

She'll reprise her role in an upcoming episode on the CBS sitcom as Kay McKinnon, a globe-trotting, worldly photographer who also happens to be Peggy Biggs' (Rondi Reed) best friend from high school. She originally appeared last season, where we saw her hit it off with Molly (Melissa McCarthy).

The Oscar and Emmy winner has starred most recently in FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show. Mike & Molly, which replaced the since-canceled The Millers's timeslot, airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
