A familiar face is returning to Dancing with the Stars.

Leah Remini will step in for co-host Erin Andrews on Monday, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Andrews will be taking a leave from the show during The World Series as part of her duties as a Fox sidelines reporter. She’ll return to DWTS after baseball’s biggest event.

Remini was paired with pro Tony Dovolani for season 18, with the couple going far, but not quite earning the Mirrorball Trophy. The pair was eliminated just before the finals.

Remini previously filled in for Andrews during last year’s World Series. E! first reported the news of her return.

The former King of Queens star won’t be the first guest co-host this year. Season 19 champion Alfonso Ribeiro previously filled in for Tom Bergeron, who took a week off to be with his father, who died Monday.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
