Olivia Wilde Confirms Return to House

by at . Comments

Amber Tamblyn debuts on House tonight. You can watch her in action in one of these clips.

But the presence of a new female on the diagnostic team doesn't mean we've seen the last of the previous female, as Olivia Wilde has confirmed her return to the Fox hit. This season.

“I am coming back to House. This season, as a matter of fact. It is a done deal,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly late last week. “I have been really lucky this year to be offered all these great film opportunities and I was also blessed to have a job in TV that really worked with me."

Patient Check-In

Wilde will next be seen on the big screen on Tron: Legacy. She's also completed filming on Cowboys & Aliens and is in the middle of The Change-Up, a comedy with Ryan Reynolds, Leslie Mann and Jason Bateman.

When Thirteen does come back to Princeton Plainsboro, "viewers will find out where she went and why she left," Wilde says, adding:

“I think it is an interesting progression for her.... She has Huntington’s. She had a brain tumor and went blind. She had a bad breakup. She’s sexually ambiguous. She had problems with drugs. I thought, `What else can (creator) David Shore possibly come up with?’ They had to take it to a whole new level. They are really taking some big risks this year, which is exciting.”

I love Thirteen. It really breaks my heart to watch House without her. In a way I was glad they didn't hire a female doctor right after she left. Good luck to Amber, but I still want Olivia to return asap.

The WORST storyline that David friggin Shore ever came up with is giving 13 Huningtons... I can c why she was given the disease, but it is a waste of talent on the part of 13. She is a great actress and I love her role. The personality of 13 is so refeshing and dfferent than Cameron who I felt was way too whiney and a real goodey two shoes! I am sure that whatever happens Olivia Wilde will act it out brilliantly!!!!

House Quotes

People don't get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There's nothing any of us can do about it.

House

House: Lift up your arms. You have a parasite.
Jill: Like a tapeworm or something?
House: Lie back and lift up your sweater. You can put your arms down.
Jill: Can you do anything about it?
House: Only for about a month or so. After that it becomes illegal to remove, except in a couple of states.
Jill: Illegal?
House: Don't worry. Many women learn to embrace this parasite. They name it, dress it up in tiny clothes, arrange playdates with other parasites...
Jill: Playdates...
House: (showing her sonogram) It has your eyes.
