Katie Holmes to Reprise Her Role as Jackie O in New 'Kennedys' Miniseries!

Katie Holmes will once again put on that iconic pillbox hat for her role as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the follow up for 2011′s The Kennedys, The Kennedys: After Camelot.

The 35-year-old actress starred alongside Greg Kinnear, Barry Pepper and Tom Wilkinson in the original miniseries, which was supposed to air on the History channel, but made the jump to Reelz after some controversy.

Katie will serve as executive producer and will direct one of the four episodes, THR reports. The show will premiere in 2016.

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 in a statement. “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.”
