Update: Kristin Chenoweth Makes Surprise Return to The Good Wife - How Long Will She Stay?

An on-the-mend Kristin Chenoweth returned to The Good Wife on Friday just weeks after announcing she was cutting her arc short due to a head injury sustained on the set of the CBS drama.

“I was able to go back a shoot a short scene with Alan Cumming on The Good Wife — #blessed,” the actress tweeted on Friday.

Good Wife co-star Josh Charles, who is directing Chenoweth’s comeback episode, called her return “the highlight of my day” on Twitter, adding, “Her talent, charm and warmth was inspiring.”

The Emmy winner, who was cast back in July as a hard-hitting political reporter who makes trouble for Peter’s campaign, was briefly hospitalized after getting struck in the head by a piece of scaffolding while shooting an outdoor scene with Charles. Her departure after just one episode (she’ll appear in the Sept. 30 opener) presumably led to the casting of Chenoweth’s former GCB co-star, Miriam Shor, in a similar reporter role — although a source said at the time that it was always the intention to bring in more than one news hound.
