That's why the news that Jesse Spencer, also known as dreamy Aussie Dr. Robert Chase on the Fox hit, is returning to the show for season 8 is so exciting. Spencer tweeted the news yesterday after surfing in California, saying "I'm coming back for season 8 with a tan and a busted board."
According to TVLine, the deal went down late Tuesday night. There's no word yet on whether soon-to-be-mega-movie-star Olivia Wilde (this summer's 'Cowboys & Aliens') is returning to the show, but 'House' creator David Shore told TVLine in May that he expects her to be back in some capacity, but maybe not as large a role as she had before.
Edelstein has already booked a new project for her post-'House' life -- she's playing a lawyer from Will's past on CBS's 'The Good Wife.' Shore and Fox have not yet announced who will replace the actress as Princeton-Plainsboro boss, but AOL TV has a few suggestions.
'House' Season 8 premieres Mon., Oct. 3 at 9PM on Fox.
Are you glad Spencer is returning to the show?
