It’s official! Reba is headed back to the small screen.

The country megastar will make her return to acting in a new ABC drama, produced by big name TV exec and Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.

The show, described by Cherry as a Southern Gothic soap opera, will find Reba in the role of “Ruby Adair,” a sheriff of a small town in Kentucky.

The character finds her views challenged when a young FBI agent of Middle Eastern decent is sent to help her solve a crime.

ABC has ordered a pilot for her new hour-long untitled series, while no official premiere date has been announced.

Reba is most famous for her roles in the Reba and Malibu Country sitcoms.
