Hey, all you Fringe fans, get ready to freak out!

The one-and-only Anna Torv is making her grand return to TV since her five-year run on Fox's beloved sci-fi hit ended, but this time she's headed to premium cable. Torv is the latest actress to sign on to Ryan Murphy's highly anticipated HBO drama, Open.

But she's not the only big name to sign on today. Critically acclaimed actress Jennifer Jason Leigh will also be joining Torv on Murphy's sexy new series.

Although most of the details are hush-hush, Open has been described as a "modern and provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships." Sounds intriguing!

Torv will shake off her Peter-loving persona in this new series playing Windsor, a yoga instructor who has been in a long-term relationship with Holly, played by Leigh. However, Torv's affections for her lady may falter because once she meets mysterious character named Grace, she feel an instant connection.

The actresses join Open alongside the previously announced cast including Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley. We're going to keep our fingers crossed that Murphy will find additional roles for Joshua Jackson and John Noble so we have have our entire Fringe family back together!
