Joely Richardson is returning for the fifth season of the hit FX drama Nip/Tuck, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She is set to appear in 15 of the 22 episodes of the show's upcoming season, starting with Episode No. 2 and will earn approximately $1.5 million (i.e. ~$100,000 per episode).

Richardson's return to Nip/Tuck follows months of speculation about the future of her and her character on the show, prompted by comments in the press made by Richardson in November regarding a serious health issue with her teen daughter. It is understood that Richardson's daughter is doing much better now.

Last season, Richardson did 11 out of 15 episodes in order to be able to spend more time with her family in England.

The upcoming fifth season of Nip/Tuck will be set in Los Angeles.
