Courtney Thorne-Smith is returning to Two and a Half Men in a recurring capacity, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The 43-year-old actress, whose credits include Ally McBeal and Melrose Place, will reprise her role as Lyndsey McElroy, the ex-flame of Alan (Jon Cryer). Thorne-Smith first appeared at the end of Season 7, before Lyndsey and Alan's relationship took a turn for the worse — he even accidentally burned down her house!
