TVLine has learned that Fox has closed a deal with the CBS drama to reprise his role as Alicia’s legal nemesis Louis Canning for multiple, season-ending episodes.
News of Fox’s possible return surfaced last month at the Television Critics Association winter press tour via Good Wife co-creator Robert King. “We’re trying to make that work,” he said at the time. “Because he finished filming [The Michael J. Fox Show], so it looks like we’re going to get a chance to get him back.”
The Good Wife is scheduled to resume its current fifth season on Sunday, March 9.Follow @MichaelAusiello
