Still mourning the loss of Will Gardner? (If so, you’re not alone.) This, though, may make your grief a bit more manageable: Taye Diggs is joining The Good Wife as a guest star in the upcoming season.

Right now, Diggs is starring as a homicide detective who struggles with the impending death of his terminally ill wife in TNT drama Murder in the First. Diggs isn’t all serious, though—the actor recently guest-starred in an episode of Fox comedy New Girl. “We’ve been huge fans for years, and love his ability to play comedy and drama with equal ease,” Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King said in a statement to E!.

There’s no word yet on what kind of role Diggs will play in his multiple-episode arc. Season six of The Good Wife premieres Sept. 21 on CBS.
