Olivia Wilde Returning for HOUSE Series Finale; Thomas Lennon Joins NEW GIRL Season Finale
It’s the end of March, which in TV Land means it’s time to start planning for the season finales that will air in May. We wanted to pass along a pair of notable finale castings over at Fox. First, TV Line reports that Olivia Wilde will return for the House series finale. Wilde left the cast last season to capitalize on her budding movie career. But since she played Thirteen for 80 episodes on the medical drama, so social courtesy dictates she returns for the very last episode. Even amid the lulls, House has always been great with “event” episodes, so I am excited to see how the writers sign off after 8 seasons (presumably with a bang). As a fan of Wilde and the character, I’m glad she will be involved. Creator David Shore and longtime House writers are currently working on the swan song, which will air on May 21.
Hit the jump for details on Thomas Lennon‘s role in New Girl.
In addition to Ellis and Lennon, Justin Long will return in the penultimate episode, reprising his role as Jess’ similarly awkward romantic interest.
