Tate is returning to "The Office" in February, reprising her role of Nellie Bertram, who was introduced as a possible replacement for Michael Scott during last season's finale. Nellie did not get that job, but she will be appearing for a story arc during the February "sweeps" period, according to TVLine.
About the sci fi show's Donna Noble, Paul Liberstein, the show's executive producer and star, said in a statement: "Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow. We'll meet her again as corporate's special projects manager, and her relationship with Robert California (James Spader) will be far from professional. We're thrilled that she's joining the cast."
