The actor’s involvement in the Fox drama’s 12th and ultimate season became public knowledge Wednesday when star David Boreanaz tweeted a photo of Fry on set.
Per Fox, Wyatt will reappear in the upcoming season’s ninth episode.
Fry, who currently stars in CBS’ The Great Indoors, first showed up as the kindly psychiatrist in Season 2, after Booth shot at an ice-cream truck. He later retired from counseling to indulge his love of cooking. His last appearance took place in Season 5.
A recent press release for the upcoming season teased “the return of fan-favorite guest stars and squinterns;” these include Eddie McClintock, who played Brennan’s ex, Sully, and Betty White, who guest-starred as Dr. Beth Meyer. Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Hal Holbrook (Evening Shade) also will show up in Episode 3 as a wise guy and a Marine veteran, respectively.
The final run also will include “a wedding, an “epic serial killer storyline” and a new undercover mission set at a lumberjack competition.
Bones‘ final season bows Tuesday, Jan. 3, on Fox (9/8c).
