Tierney To Return To Tv

Cancer-stricken actress MAURA TIERNEY is planning to get back to to work - she's set to return to her TV show RESCUE ME next year (10).
Production on Tierney's latest TV show, Parenthood, was halted in July (09) to allow her to undergo a "medical evaluation" after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She subsequently ruled out a return to Parenthood and left TV bosses to re-cast the role.
But now producers at Tierney's previous TV show, firefighter drama Rescue Me, have revealed they plan to bring the actress back for a role in the upcoming seventh season, which is due to start shooting in 2010.
Executive producer Peter Tolan tells People.com, "We are just about finished writing the entire sixth season, which is about 10 episodes, and then there are nine more, so we know we're going to bring back Maura Tierney, because we loved her and she loved us, which is even more fulfilling. She can take care of herself and come back then."
Tierney's spokesperson adds, "(She) would love to come back to Rescue Me if possible."
The actress appeared in season five of the U.S. drama opposite Denis Leary.
