Hetty Lange, portrayed by Linda Hunt, has been off the show since she suffered a car accident earlier this year. The American actress released a statement addressing why she wouldn't be on the show for some time. Hunt assured her fans that she was okay and would be back in the current season.

"Though I had hoped to return to playing Hetty at the start of the season," Hunt said in a statement to TV Line. She continued that "I had to take some additional time to recover. I look forward to returning later this season."

The TV persona didn't state when she will be back which is why fans can't stop wondering if the time is now. The Oscars award-winning TV star is dearly missed on the show for her outstanding performance and bringing Hetty Lange to life.

Hunt is a successful actress in the movie industry even though she never knew she'd make it this big. The CBS actress originally wanted to be a stage director because she thought that "her small stature would limit acting opportunities," per TV Guide. Now, she has fruitful 43 years of experience under her belt.
