One of the most talked about episodes of “Modern Family” was the one where Mitch and Cam’s flamboyant friend Pepper Saltzman, played by legendary character actor Lane, made an appearance in the neighborhood. Watch out now, because Pepper is making a comeback!

TVGuide reports that Lane will be returning as Pepper in an episode this spring, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Not that the show really needs a ratings boost, as it is one of the most critically acclaimed and popular primetime comedies on TV right now, but we won’t turn down an opportunity to see the hilarious Mr. Lane in action doing what he does best: being gay and wonderful!

Executive producer Steve Levitan had this to say about his return to the show:

“Mitch and Cam go out for a boys night with Pepper and a bunch of their other gay friends,” he said this weekend. “Jay stumbles in to the party,” he added. “We’re having a lot of fun playing with Nathan and this will be a very funny use of him.”

The hit show also won the award for Best Comedy Series this Saturday at the Producers Guild Awards. Congrats!

We are really looking forward to seeing Nathan on the show again. If last time was any indication, we are in for a real treat!
