house lisa edelstein as dr lisa cuddy  4 'House's' Lisa Edelstien books 'The Good Wife' recurring gigGood news, Lisa Edelstein fans! No, you won’t be seeing her on the upcoming season of “House” — but you won’t be going into complete withdrawal. Edelstein, who wasn’t able to reach a contract agreement with “House” bosses, has set her sights on CBS instead.

TVLine reports that Edelstein has booked a “juicy” guest starring role on “The Good Wife” which will span several episodes. Her character is a lawyer — and a bit of a card shark — who has significant history with Will (Josh Charles). No word yet on whether that history is personal or professional, but we can’t wait to find out.

Now a lawyer after seven seasons as a top-dog doctor… anyone remember when she was Ben Covington’s recovering alcoholic baby-mama on “Felicity”?

“House” returns, Cuddy-free, on Monday, Oct. 3. No announcement has been made on “The Good Wife’s” return date.
