Katie Holmes will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy Onassis in the TV miniseries "The Kennedys – After Camelot.”

The miniseries is a follow-up to "The Kennedys" miniseries for ReelzChannel and is based on a book by Randy Taraborrelli, The Associated Press reported.

The miniseries is set to air in 2016, and Holmes will direct and executive produce one of the four episodes in the series. Jon Cassar, who directed the original miniseries, will direct the other three.

"The Kennedys" had a record 1.9 million total viewers and 10 Emmy nominations.

"Katie elegantly portrayed Jackie Kennedy in the first miniseries and now will continue the role as Jackie grows into the Jackie O that the world knows best," Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Katie is brave, committed and perfect for this role. She is a strong, talented woman who understands how special and respected Jackie Kennedy, and then Jackie Onassis was, as an international icon."

“The Kennedys” was commissioned by the History Channel, but the network dropped the show under political pressure.
