The Good Wife: Josh Charles Eyes Return for May 8 Series Finale?

Where there’s a Will there’s a way. Even in death.

I’m hearing Josh Charles will reprise his role as the late Will Gardner in The Good Wife‘s May 8 season finale. Rumor has it he will appear opposite Julianne Margulies’ Alicia in a newly-created flashback sequence (NCFS). CBS would not confirm Charles’ return.

Charles’ Will was killed off in Season 5’s 15th episode, titled “Dramatics, Your Honor,” although he reappeared the following week in a series of NCFSs. He returned to the show in Season 6 to direct an episode.

Shortly after the The Good Wife‘s final-season announcement in February, Charles took to Twitter to congratulate the cast and crew “on an amazing run,” adding, “I’m proud to have been a part of it.”

The Emmy-nominated actor’s post Good Wife credits include Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival.
