Kathy Griffin will return to TV on "Real Time With Bill Maher" on March 9 after an extended leave of absence following the release of pictures depicting her holding a fake, severed head of President Donald Trump last year.

TVLine confirmed the booking, which was announced at the end of Maher's recent "Real Time" episode.

Griffin came under fire almost immediately after she posted the controversial images, and although she issued an apology shortly after, the ramifications were extensive.

She was axed from her position as co-host on CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast, lost various endorsement contracts and suffered several live performance cancellations as a result.

Adding to her woes, the Secret Service launched an investigation into the post while Griffin bared the brunt of an aggressive public campaign launched against her by the Trump family.

It was not long after her initial apology that Griffin resurfaced with claims that Trump had been trying to ruin her life before she slipped back into relative obscurity, Page Six noted.

However now it seems that the 57-year-old is planning a comeback.

"I do normal stuff, like see my mom and play with my puppies," Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter of her life now but added that her mind was "always focused on the best way to move forward."

"The minute I do something that makes money, they will all love me again," she said. "When I'm dead, I'll be a legend. But not now."
