Good Wife Exclusive: Dylan Baker Set to Return

The Good Wife has some unfinished business with Dylan Baker’s convicted killer Colin Sweeney.

The actor — who appeared during Season 1 as major client of Lockhart Gardner with whom Alicia (Julianna Margulies) successfully defended for the murder of his wife (but who later went to jail for another murder) — is returning to the CBS drama this fall, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Details on his comeback are scarce, but rumor has it Sweeney gets sprung from the pokey when Alicia needs his help with a case.

Baker’s initial Good Wife arc earned him a 2010 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series. His encore is slated to air in October.
