Good Wife Exclusive: Michael J. Fox Returns!

Get More: Exclusive

michael j fox good wifeSunday night’s installment of The Good Wife found Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart cracking a joke about raiding the law firm of rival Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox). But perhaps there was a little bit of truth in her zinger.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Fox is returning to CBS’ Sunday-night drama for the eleventh episode of Season 4, which will likely air in January 2013.

The actor last appeared on The Good Wife during its Season 3 finale, when Canning and competitor Patti Nyholm (Martha Plimpton) teamed up on a case with a broader eye on stealing one of L/G’s biggest clients, a ruse that proved successful and exacerbated the firm’s financial crisis. Fox scored Emmy nominations as Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his Good Wife role in 2011 and 2012.

In August, NBC ordered 22 episodes of a new semi-autobiographical family sitcom starring the erstwhile Alex P. Keaton — bypassing the pilot process entirely.

Excited to see Fox’s wily lawyer back in the fray with Alicia & Co.? Hit the comments with your thoughts!

  • Love Michael J. Fox in this role. I am glad to see we will see some more of Louis before Michael’s sitcom gets off the ground.

  • I love Michael J. Fox but this is getting a little old. Every time he would lose the case against L&G but actually won in some other way (like last years finale where he lost the case but stole L&G biggest client). Either that or he comes in and AGAIN offer Alicia a job which she would turn him down AGAIN….
