Looks like Portia de Rossi is headed back to television — and we could not be more excited!

Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter on Wednesday in typical Ellen-fashion to (not so subtly) announce that she wasn't going to announce some special news regarding Portia.

"So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops," Ellen tweeted

Entertainment Weekly has since confirmed that Portia is indeed joining the hit show for Season 4 in a multiple-episode arc.

Portia was mostly recently seen in Netflix's new season of Arrested Development as hilariously out-of-touch Lindsay Bluth Fünke.


The fourth season is set to air this fall on September 25, when we will inevitably see Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope second-guessing her decision to fly off into the sunset and return to the fray.

Are you excited to see Portia take on the world of Scandal? Do you think she'll be buddying up with the Gladiators, or do you think she'll be facing off against them in a certain B-613 kind of way? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
