The Good Wife has found a replacement for Kalinda.

And he's very easy on the eyes.

CBS has confirmed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will serve as a series regular on Season 7 of this beloved drama, coming on board as a veteran investigator named Alex.

Look for Alicia to likely hire him to work at her her firm.

“We’ve loved and admired Jeffrey Dean Morgan for years,” executive producers Robert and Michelle King said in a statement. “And we were thrilled to hear that Julianna did too, so it was a no-brainer to ask him to join our troupe."

With Matthew Goode out as Finn, it’s only natural to wonder whether Alicia and Alex will mix a bit of pleasure with their business.

Morgan is currently starring opposite Halle Berry on Extant Season 2.

His previous TV credits include Magic City, Weeds, Supernatural and Grey’s Anatomy (rest in peace, Denny!).

The Good Wife Season 7 kicks off on Sunday, October 4.
