Isaiah Washington has booked his return to television.

Six years after departing Grey's Anatomy in controversial fashion (he referred to costar T.R. Knight by a homophobic slur), the actor has joined the cast of The CW's The 100.

Isaiah Washington: Back to Work

The series is based on a series of Kass Morgan novels and is set nearly a century into the future, following the destruction of civilization via nuclear war. With all human beings now residing in a space station, 100 juvenile delinquents will be set back to the planet to see if it can be saved.

Washington will portray Jaha, the leader of that space station.

The impressive pilot cast also includes Henry Ian Cusick, Bob Morley, Eli Goree, Marie Avgeropoulos and Eliza Taylor.
