According TVLine, Fox will reprise the role of Louis Canning for at least three or four episodes.

Fox's character was last seen offering Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) a position at his new law firm. She ultimately declined.

The 'Spin City' veteran was nominated for an Emmy for his 'Good Wife' role, but lost to 'Harry's Law' guest Paul McCrane.

The ONLY thing I did not like about the last season of The Good Wife was the Michael J. Fox character. I just don't know why they think he is such a great addition to the show.
