The six brand new episodes that Amanda is set to star in will mark the 25th anniversary of the BBC One drama.
Since her exit after the eighth series, the show has featured an ensemble cast, which initially consisted of William Gaminara, Tom Ward and Emilia Fox, and later on David Caves, Liz Carr and Richard Lintern alongside Emilia Fox.
Emilia said: ‘It is such a delight and thrill to be working with Amanda. To have Sam Ryan back again at the heart of the show is the greatest way of all to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Silent Witness.’
The 24th series of Silent Witness concluded this week and the next series is due to air on BBC One next year
