Good Wife Exclusive: Michael J. Fox Returning For Multiple Episodes

It looks like Michael J. Fox will be back in the Emmy race next year: The actor is returning to The Good Wife this season for a sizeable run, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Fox — who was favored to take home the Guest Actor trophy at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys (but lost out to Paul McCrane from Harry’s Law) — will reprise his role as Alicia’s morally flexible nemesis Louis Canning for “three or four episodes,” executive producer Robert King confirms.

When last seen in the spring, Louis offered Alicia a full partnership in his new law firm, which she declined. There’s no word on what brings him back into the fold.

The Good Wife returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c. (With reporting by Michael Maloney)
