Kate Winslet is coming back to the small screen in an HBO series. But before you get your hopes up, you should know that she’s not returning to play detective Mare Sheehan in the hit drama series, Mare of Easttown.

According to Variety, the Emmy-award-winning actress is set to star in a limited HBO series based on the Hernan Diaz novel, Trust. While she’s already confirmed to star in the show, Winslet will also be the executive producer.

The HBO series centers around a wealthy financier who reads a book about himself and becomes outraged by how he and his wife are depicted in the story. His solution? He confides in a secretary to ghostwrite a memoir and tell everyone the truth. But, his wife soon discovers that he’s trying to rewrite history, including her own past.

Winslet most recently starred in the breakout series, Mare of Easttown. The story follows Mare Sheehan (Winslet), a detective who works in a small town in Pennslyvania. As a grisly murder shakes the town, Mare races against time to find the true culprit, while also trying to keep her life from falling apart.

At the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards, she took home the statuette for Best Actress in a Limited Series award for her outstanding performance. Her fellow castmate, Evan Peters, won his first-ever Emmy Award for his role as Detective Colin Zabel in the series.

Honestly, you had us at Winslet.
