Following an equipment accident last month on the set of CBS’s Julianna Margulies-led The Good Wife, Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth has announced that she will be leaving her recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of the legal drama.
“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,” read a statement from Chenoweth sent to Hollywood.com. “Getting better slowly and thank you everyone for your concern.”
Chenoweth was injured on July 11 when a piece of lighting equipment fell onto her at the show’s Brooklyn, N.Y., set. She was slated to recur as a political reporter on Season 4 of the CBS hit, but her appearance will now be limited to only the show’s season premiere episode, which will air on Sept. 30.
