Her character, Maddie Buckley, was last seen in episode three of season five when she left Los Angeles having been suffering from postpartum depression.

Earlier in January, Jennifer shared the news of her return by posting two glamorous selfies showing off her recent short haircut and told followers how much she has missed her character.
