Savannah Chrisley is back in Hollywood after being cast as a character named “Savannah” on the hit NBC drama “The Americans.”

Chrisleys character, played by Sarah Paulson, was originally played by Jennifer Ehle, but was brought back for Season 4, which aired in November.

The actress has been starring in several other television projects, including “The People v.

O.J. Simpson” and “The Vampire Diaries.”

Chresley starred on the show for five seasons, from 2005-10.

She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance in Season 4.

Chrislers role in “The American” has been largely credited to series creator and executive producer Sam Esmail, who told EW she’s “absolutely delighted” to see the character return.

“It’s such a big part of the fabric of this show and it’s such an iconic part of this country,” she said.

“I think there’s so much excitement about the fact that we finally get to see her back.

I think it’s so important that people recognize her as an actor and recognize the incredible work that Sam Esmaier and the writers have done with this character and I think people are going to enjoy seeing her again.”

The show is expected to premiere this spring.
