Billy Baldwin is reprising his role as Serena's father William on Gossip Girl, sources confirm.

He will return to the series in the 17th episode of the current fifth season, set to air sometime in February or March (the winter premiere January 16 marks just the 11th episode of Season Five).

Details are under wraps, and still being worked out, but we do know that "a crisis brings him back into the fold."

Let your imaginations run wild with that one in the comments below ...

As we said earlier, Gossip Girl kicks off the second half of Season 5 a week from Monday, picking up in the aftermath of the insane, life-altering, papparrazzi-triggered car crash that closed out 2011.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
