The Raising Hope star will be joined by another fan-favorite recurring player on the legal drama — Denis O'Hare, who will take the bench again as the honorable Judge Abernathy. O'Hare, who has also recurred since the first season, tweeted a picture with Plimpton from the set on Friday.
Plimpton's return marks her first time back on The Good Wife since she won the Emmy for Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series in September. She took home the award for her performance in the Season 3 finale, in which her character, Patti, and Michael J. Fox's Louis Canning teamed up to try to take over Lockhart/Gardner.
No word yet on what kind of case Patti will be fighting the firm on, but it will no doubt be a doozy.
