Shannen plays a grown a grown-up version of her old character, an actress who comes back to West Beverly Hills High School as the drama teacher. Originally the star was only slated to appear in a few epsiodes, but fans have been crying out for more.

“I’ve worked for 27 years, steadily, thanks to very loyal fans," she said recently. "What’s the one way to say thank you? To play a character that you thought you’d never play again in the one show they want to see.”

Thanks, Shannen!
