Felicity Huffman Is Reportedly Planning Her Comeback
Forget the college admissions scandal.
Is the world ready for a Felicity Huffman comeback? The actor is hoping that by next year, everyone will have forgotten about her involvement with the college admissions scandal and her 13 days in prison. According to Entertainment Tonight, a source close to Huffman says that she's planning on coming back to the entertainment industry in 2021.
For now, Huffman is waiting out the COVID-19 pandemic, but the source notes that she'll make a return to acting next year. They also explained that Huffman's dedication to her community service hours, which include prison reform, will continue long after she's completed her court order.
"Like everyone else, Felicity is staying home with her family and quarantining," the source told ET. "She continues to be very involved with the charities involving prison reform and The Teen Project. Once COVID settles, and as she has said in the past, she will continue the work past the completion of her community service hours. Felicity is also hopeful that she’ll be able to return to acting early next year."
While many of the parents involved with the college admissions scandal are still waiting for sentencing — Lori Loughlin included — Huffman served 13 days at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. In addition to jail time, her sentence also included a year of supervised release, a $30,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service.
Huffman was seen in January serving her community service at The Teen Project, an organization that assists at-risk homeless and sex-trafficked women. It's a cause she and her daughter Georgia have worked with in the past.
"For the last two years, Felicity and younger daughter Georgia have been going to The Teen Project two to three times a week and tutoring young high school girls to help them get their GED," a source previously shared with ET. "These are girls who are from at-risk populations, who have been on the streets, human trafficked, or suffered addiction."
