Grey's Anatomy star Jason George confirmed Tuesday that he will return to his frequent guest starring role on ABC medical drama in the fall, despite the fact that he just got a starring role on another show.

The actor, who also stars on ABC's Mistresses, landed a recurring role in the Lifetime's Witches of East End, The Hollywood Reporter noted Tuesday. The show evolves around Joanna Beauchamp (Mad Men's Julia Ormond) and her two adult daughters - Freya (American Horror Story's Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (In Plain Sight's Rachel Boston). The daughters do not know they are the family's next generation of witches but when Freya gets engaged, a series of events force Joanna to tell her daughters the truth.  

George will play Ingrid's love interest, Adam, according to the report. He is described as the charming and charismatic local detective in the Long Island seaside town of East Haven. He and Ingrid have a lifelong crush on one another but their relationship gets complicated when he arrests her mother for murder.

The actor tweeted Tuesday about his new acting gig but reassured Grey's Anatomy fans that he will not abruptly depart the ABC series. When one social media user asked, "will you be back next season for Grey's?" George replied, "Pretty sure Yes." In the series, he plays Miranda Bailey's husband, Dr. Ben Warren.

Lifetime ordered 10 episodes of the Witches in January. George joins a cast that also includes Madchen Amick (Beauty and the Beast), Glenne Headly (Parks and Recreation) and recurring star Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). A premiere date for the series has not yet been announced.

Witches of East End is based on Melissa de la Cruz's best-selling novel with the same name.

When in season, Grey's Anatomy airs Sundays on ABC at 9 p.m. ET.
