Kristin Chenoweth Exiting 'The Good Wife' Due to Injury
Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth has had to pull out of television series The Good Wife after a horrific on-set accident last month.
Chenoweth, 44, revealed on Monday that she will not be able to continue with her guest role on the popular CBS legal series.
“It is with deep regret [that I have] to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife at this time,” she told Celebuzz via her rep.
“(I’m) getting better slowly and thank you everyone for your concern,” the tiny actress said.
What does that mean for Chenoweth's guest role?
While the award-winning Broadway star was meant to appear throughout the upcoming season, she will now only be seen on the season 4 premiere September 30. Though, she has told fans that she may be back.

The exact nature of Chenoweth’s injury remains unclear, but reports from the July 11 accident suggested the star suffered a head injury after she was struck by a piece of lighting equipment.
Witnesses on the Brooklyn, N.Y., set said the Wicked performer was knocked unconscious and suffered a seizure.
