Michelle Monaghan is set to return for the sixth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise.
The actress joined the ongoing film series as Julia Meade, the wife of Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) in Mission: Impossible III but following her rescue from the villainous Owen Davian played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Hunt had to fake Julia’s death in order to keep her safe. The actress then briefly appeared as Julia for a cameo at the end of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol but has not been seen since.
Director Christopher McQuarrie revealed Monaghan’s return today via Instagram which the actress then followed up on with a Tweet, sharing her excitement to be reuniting with Cruise in the franchise. You can check out their posts below.

Plot details are currently still under wraps but Monaghan joins Cruise alongside returning stars Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Sean Harris, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames as well as franchise newcomers Angela Bassett, Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby (The Crown), Frederick Schmidt (Supergirl), and Sian Brooke (Sherlock).
McQuarrie directs and also produces the sixth installment along with Cruise, Don Granger and J.J. Abrams as well as David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions. Production began in Paris in April but has since moved on to New Zealand. Principal photography is also expected to take place in London and India before the shoot wraps up next month. The film is being shot with IMAX 3D cameras.
Mission: Impossible 6 is slated to hit theaters on July 27, 2018.
