Pam Dawber, who starred opposite Robin Williams in the hit television show "Mork & Mindy," will appear in an episode of the series he currently stars in, "The Crazy Ones," according to TV Guide.

"Mork & Mindy," which ran from 1978 to 1982, launched Williams' career. Dawber's appearance, which will air in the spring, will be her first television role since the movie "Don't Look Behind You" in 1999.

Dawber will play Lily, a travel memoir author whose Williams' character, Simon Roberts, is smitten by after he meets her at a book signing.

Williams shared the news on Twitter.

Dawber hasn't moved too far from the world of television. She is married to Mark Harmon, star of the long-running CBS hit drama "NCIS."

In "Mork & Mindy," Williams played Mork, an alien from the planet Ork, and Dawber played the young woman who befriended him. The two characters eventually got married on the show.

In "The Crazy Ones," Williams plays an eccentric head of an advertisement agency opposite of Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk. "The Crazy Ones" opened to strong ratings in September, leading to CBS to order a full season of the freshman comedy series in October, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

"The Crazy Ones" garnered a 4.0 rating among the coveted 18-49 demographic, making it the highest rated first-year comedy of the 2013 fall season. An estimated 15.6 million watched the show's premiere.

Williams has a decorated movie career, nominated for Academy Awards four times, winning in 1998 for best supporting actor in "Good Will Hunting," a movie that also earned Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Best Screenplay Oscars.

Williams is also slated to appear in four movies in 2014, including "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn," "Merry Friggin' Christmas," "Night at the Museum 3" and "Boulevard."
