It looks like Joe the Bartender is taking his mixology skills to another show this year. Sort of.

According to The Huffington Post and TVLine, Grey's Anatomy veteran Steven Bailey, who plays the beloved yet rarely seen Joe the Bartender, has landed a guest starring role on the second season of Shonda Rhimes’ newest show, Scandal. No details have been released about the role, but we’re hoping it won’t stop Joe from running things at the good ol' bar across the street from Seattle Grace-Mercy West.

Speaking of Joe, what has he been up to lately? We wonder if he’s still with Walter. We'll probably find out at some point. Those doctors are going to need a few drinks after that plane crash, don’t you think?

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
