The Good Wife: Kyle MacLachlan Returns to Reignite Flirty Feud

Kyle MacLachlan The Good Wife Season 6

Reunited and it feels so… quirky.

Kyle MacLachlan is set to reprise his role as oddball attorney Josh Perotti in The Good Wife‘s upcoming sixth season.

MacLachlan’s comeback will coincide with the previously-announced return of Carrie Preston’s Elsbeth, with whom his character generated major sparkage (both in the courtroom and out).

Will lightning strike twice for the loopy lawyers?

“They haven’t sent me any scripts [yet]… the only thing I know is that he and I have a little sparring thing that we do,” Preston told TVLine Saturday at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. “I am looking forward to getting back in the ring with him for another round.”

MacLachlan has a busy fall ahead of him. In addition to The Good Wife, the Twin Peaks vet is set to recur on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Skye’s father.

    I think what made The Good Wife an initial success is the quality of their guest stars, Martha Plimpton, America Ferrera, Titus Welliver, Mike Colter just to mention a few. They make for great story telling, be it as clients, adversaries, allies or love interests.

    Can’t wait to see Kyle MacLachlan pulling double duty on both Good Wife and Agents of SHIELD. Too bad about Believe getting canceled by NBC. Wonder if he’s still looking to have his own series sometime in the near future.

  3. Steven says:

    I’m hoping now that Raising Hope is gone (RIP), Martha Plimpton can recur next season.

    Carrie Preston needs to be a regular now that True Blood is wrapping up.

  5. Becky says:

    I love all the episodes with Carrie Preston as Elsbeth. And the “major sparkage” that she and Kyle McLaughlin generated was a treat. There is no denying their chemistry – very fun to watch.

    Am a big fan of Julianna. She’s insanely talented, any character she portrays, script spoken or merely facial expression or body languageshe delivers & portrays exceptionally well. She never disappoints, & she carries herself so fine. Fabulous & beautiful, that’s Julianna. . Christine Baranski, A. Cummings , & the rest of their cast are superb. Missing Josh a Charles. He & Julianna had the most amazing chemistry, I was so disappointed they had to end.
