Joely Richardson will be back on FX's "Nip/Tuck" next season, thanks in part to a large pay bump.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richardson will make close to $100,000 per episode next season, or $1.3-$1.5 million for the season.
That means that Richardson will only appear in 15 of 22 episodes for the fifth season of "Nip/Tuck." That's an increase over what had been speculated after Richardson did only 11 of 15 episodes last season.
When last we saw Richardson's Julia, she was ditching Sean (Julian McMahon) and moving to New York. The entire show is packing up and moving to Los Angeles next season and Richardson isn't expected to appear until the second episode.
Richardson cut her fourth season short to return to England to spend time with her family. Media reports swirled about health issues involving her teenage daughter, though the daughter's health appears to have improved.
Most recently seen in "The Last Mimzy," Richardson has snagged a pair of Golden Globe nominations for her work on "Nip/Tuck."
