Great news out of the world of The Good Wife today:

“As soon as we saw the dailies of Michael playing Louis Canning, we started pleading with him to return,” series creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King told EW. “Luckily he agreed. He’s amazing in this role: unpretentiously brave and funny. It’s good to have him back.”

Look for Fox to reprise this role on episode 13, titled “Real Deal." 

It will focus on Alicia trying to sign up homeowners for some kind of class action lawsuit. Reads a press release from CBS regarding the installment:

“As the two rush to sign up the same clients, Alicia begins to worry that Canning is actually working for the defendant and trying to undermine her suit by creating a competing one."
