Natalie Dormer may finally reprise her role as Moriarty in Season 6 of “Elementary.”

Executive producer Rob Doherty teased to TVLine that Moriarty’s return to the show could be just around the corner. “With respect to Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller), we’re working hard to see an old flame come back to the show,” Doherty said at CBS’ summer press soiree.

While Doherty didn’t mention Moriarty’s name, the showrunner did say that the mystery ex “may or may not lead a league of assassins — or once led a league of assassins,” which is outright confirmation that he’s indeed referring to Dormer’s character. At the London Film and Comic Con last month, Dormer also said (via Radio Times) that the chances of her going back to “Elementary” are “pretty high.”

At the same convention, Dormer revealed that she actually had no idea that she would be playing the role of Moriarty when she agreed to join the series. “[Doherty] offered me the role [of Irene Adler] straight off but he didn’t tell me I was Moriarty,” the 35-year-old English actress shared. “It was a stroke of genius. He told me before we started shooting but he just offered me Irene Adler [first]. The icing on the cake was ‘Oh, you’re the first ever female Moriarty’ so it’s very, very cool.”

Despite the gender-swapping, Dormer thinks that the CBS series remains true to the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes stories. “What Rob Doherty did with Irene and Moriarty I think is very clever and just a reimagining of the wealth and texture of the writing,” Dormer said. “Because if you know the books, then [you know] Moriarty and Sherlock are sort of dependent on one another, they are two guys who exist to beat the other one, so the idea of putting an ex-love affair, to make people obsessed about each other, is actually a very shrewd clever writing move, so I think it was very intelligent. And it brings Sherlock Holmes to a whole new generation.”

Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer will return to London theatre to play an actress who turns up unannounced for an audition in black comedy Venus In Fur.

The actress will appear alongside Victoria’s David Oakes in the David Ives play, which will be directed by Patrick Marber, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s 1870 novel, which inspired the term masochism, the play premiered off-Broadway in New York in 2010 before transferring to Broadway.

The new version will reunite Dormer with Marber after she played the title role in his play After Miss Julie at the Young Vic in 2012.

Natalie, 35, will play actress Vanda Jordan, who appears unannounced to audition for director Thomas Novachek, played by Oakes.

The production is set over one evening in downtown Manhattan, when the meeting between actress and director becomes a seductive dance.

Venus In Fur is at Theatre Royal Haymarket from October 6 to December 9
