Sandra Oh has already signed her new project. 

Multiple outlets confirm that the Killing Eve star has been cast in a new dramedy titled The Chair at Netflix.

In The Chair, Oh will play the head of an English department at a major university. Jay Duplass is also attached to star in an unspecified role.

The six-episode half-hour series hails from Amanda Peet, who’s primarily known for her work in front of the camera. The Chair marks Peet’s first go at creating a series. She’ll also executive produce with Game of Thrones creators Dan Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Peet and Annie Julia Wyman co-wrote the pilot for The Chair.

Sandra Oh is most known for her role as Dr. Christina Yang in Shonda Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy and Eve Polastri in Killing Eve, for which she became the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
