Archie Panjabi is coming back to CBS — but the visit is only temporary (dang it).

The actress best known for her beloved turn as Kalinda Sharma on The Good Wife will guest-star on the second season of Bull, EW has learned exclusively.

Panjabi will play Arti Cander, who the drama describes as “a brilliant and resourceful British trial scientist with no shortage of charm.” Here’s her official logline: “Bull [Michael Weatherly] meets his match in the Oxford-educated Cander, a successful former D.C. lobbyist who’s more than a worthy adversary for him. She knows how to read a jury as well as he does, and is ready to prove to everyone that Bull isn’t the only trial scientist in town.”

Panjabi will film her episode next week. It will air in November.

After winning an Emmy for starring on the CBS drama The Good Wife, Panjabi left the show in 2015. She went on to make appearances in Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Blindspot as well as the British drama Next of Kin.

The second season of Bull premieres at 9 p.m. ET Sept. 26 on CBS.
