By Kyle Johnson,

Betsy Brandt, who has appeared in one episode of NBC's Parenthood will be returning for a recurring role on the show's final season.

The Breaking Bad alum will once again play Ray Romano's character's ex-wife, Sandy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She previously only was in the season four episode "Trouble in Candyland.

In the episode Sandy was taking their daughter to Minnesota, where she planned to start her life anew.

Brandt will make her return in the season premiere, which will kick off on Sept. 25.

Since her time on Breaking Bad, she has also been on the short-lived Michael J. Fox Show and recurred on Masters of Sex. She will also star on an upcoming ABC series, Members Only.

As previously reported, the critically acclaimed but audience-starved series was renewed by NBC for one final shortened season. The sixth season will run for 13 episodes and allow the creative team to wrap the show up their way.

Parenthood's fifth season finale only managed to draw a 1.3 rating in the advertiser-important 18-49 demographic and 3.7 million total viewers.
