the big bang theory season 6 christine baranskiBrace yourself, Leonard: Mommy Dearest is paying another visit.

The Good Wife‘s Christine Baranski has signed on to reprise her role as Leonard’s brilliant-but-socially-challenged TV mother Beverly in an early Season 7 episode of The Big Bang Theory, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Beverly was last seen in the CBS hit’s Season 5 premiere when she turned up via Skype to offer Leonard advice on his Penny vs. Priya predicament.

When she returns in the Oct. 10 episode, it will once again be via Skype (Baranski’s Good Wife duties on the East Coast make in-person appearances difficult). It’s not clear what brings her back, but, given her special connection to Sheldon, one shouldn’t assume it’s her son she wants to see. Just putting that out there!

The Big Bang Theory‘s seventh season gets underway with back-to-back original episodes on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 8/7c.

    the queen is back

  4. liz says:

    absolutely fantastic! I LOVE her on The Good Wife, but on TBBT she plays such a different character its delightful. And I love what the character brings out in Leonard, Penny and Sheldon.

  5. lariet50 says:

    Woo hoo! I love her in this role.

  6. bill says:

    I wish Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf would appear TOGETHER. That would be awesome.

  7. Wenders says:

    I still really want Leonard and Sheldon’s moms to meet! But so excited for Christine Baranski….love her!

  8. Mikael says:

    Has she won an Emmy for best guest appearance? Her first episode and the one when she and Penny get drunk are among the show’s funniest episodes. I also wish Leonard’s and Sheldon’s moms would meet.

  9. Awesome, I have loved her for years!

  10. jj says:

    Would love to see her and Amy interact.

  11. Babar says:

    Yay, I love her character.

  12. Babygate says:

    LOVE her as Leonard’s mom. This will be fantastic. What about Sheldon’s mom? Laurie Metcalf is a hoot!

  13. AJ says:

    Can’t wait. Love her as Leonard’s mom.

  14. Tina Corry says:

    The ultimate episode: Sheldon’t mom and Leonard’s mom fighting over Penny’s dad!

  15. Jeannette says:

    Laurie Metcalf was starring in a broadway show earlier in the year, which could have been why she wasn’t available. Now, she’ll be on broadway in a new show for several months and she’s also filming a TV show for one of the cable networks. So, Baranski and Metcalf won’t be happening together onscreen for awhile. But hopefully before the show ends.

    I would give anything to witness a discussion between Howard’s mother and Leonard’s mother about creationism versus evolution! Bonus points if they can wedge Mrs. Wolowitz in there somehow! (And you KNOW Mrs. Cooper will give Mrs. Wolowitz a ham! It’s only Christian, after all!)

    I think I may spend the weekend making my first attempt at “fan fiction”! (Wouldn’t Diane Lockhart be proud of me!?)

  17. Rick says:

    We need Sheldon and Leonard’s mothers to pay a visit on a same episode. And bring back Sheldon’s sister. Any chance we get to meet Penny’s mom too…??
