Two-time Emmy winner Blythe Danner will return to the small screen next year as a guest star on an episode of Medium.

Danner will play Sarah Leaming, the mother of an MIA nurse, whose chronically ill stepdaughter is subjected to "unconventional" treatment.

"Continuing a tradition of asking world-class actresses to come join us on Medium, I am thrilled to announce that Blythe Danner will appear in one of the early episodes of Season 5," Executive Producer Glenn Gordon Caron said.

A Tony Award winner as well, Danner, 65, mom to Gwyneth Paltrow, was last seen on TV as Hank Azaria's mom on Huff, for which she won back-to-back Emmys. She also played mama to Will (Eric McCormack) on Will & Grace.
