Gwyneth Paltrow says she's returning to Glee.

The actress told Access Hollywood on Sunday that she will reprise her role as substitute teacher Holly Holiday on the Fox series, but didn't offer details on when that episode would tape or air.

Paltrow, who next stars as a country music singer in the film Country Strong, which opens Jan. 7, first appeared on Glee last month, singing Cee Lo Green's "Forget You" and joining the Glee gang for a mash-up of Rihanna's "Umbrella" and "Singin' in the Rain." The Nov. 16 episode posted a 7% ratings increase from the previous week and was the night's top-rated show.

Also scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode of Glee is Katie Couric, joining a list of previous guest stars including Britney Spears and Neil Patrick Harris. Couric, who recently paid tribute to her late sister at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 breakfast, will appear on the post-Super Bowl episode, which airs Feb. 6.
