Michael J. Fox Returning to ‘The Good Wife’

Michael J. Fox The Good Wife

A day after his eponymous sitcom was yanked from NBC’s Thursday night lineup, it was announced that Michael J. Fox will head back to familiar grounds with CBS’s “The Good Wife.”

Sources confirm that the thesp will reprise his role of Louis Canning, rival attorney to star Julianna Margulies’ Alicia Florrick, for multiple episodes this season.

While “The Michael J. Fox Show” struggled in ratings, Fox has had better luck on the CBS drama, where he has received three Emmy nominations for guest actor in a drama.

New episodes of “The Good Wife” start on Sunday, March 9.

    This is great news. His character on The Good Wife was so well written and acted. His talents were wasted on that god awful sitcom.
