TVLine Items: Archie Panjabi Is Female Bull, Fox's Rent Set for 2019 and More

Archie Panjabi Bull

The Good Wife vet Archie Panjabi is returning to her former CBS stomping grounds for a guest spot on the network’s sophomore drama Bull.

Just like Michael Weatherly’s TAC team leader, Panjabi’s character — the brilliant Arti Cander — “is a trial scientist as well,” Bull showrunner Glenn Gordon Caron tells TVLine of Panjabi’s one-off appearance, in Episode 8. “We’re very excited to have her.”

Bull returns this Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on CBS.

EW.com first reported the casting.
