Kristin Chenoweth had a planned multi-episode arc on the show, but the actress said she would focus on recovering from a head injury.
“It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to 'The Good Wife' at this time," Chenoweth said in a statement. "Getting better slowly and thank you everyone for your concern.”
Chenoweth will still be featured in the fourth season premiere, which will air Sept. 30. She said via Twitter that she hoped to return to the show when she was able after recuperation from her injury.
The actress was struck on set by a piece of lighting equipment that was shaken by wind.
On “The Good Wife,” Chenoweth will play a reporter who was digging into the story of Julianna Margulie’s Alicia and Chris Noth’s Peter, who are separated on the show.
