David Shore had expressed interest in bringing closure to the House-Cuddy relationship by having Edelstein return. But Lisa Edelstein said she did not expect it to happen:
"I haven’t talked to anyone over there so it would seem unlikely. Who knows what I’ll be doing. I have a lot on my plate. I wouldn’t want to answer that and get anyone’s hopes up. It doesn’t seem like that’s the direction anyone is going in.”
It’s unclear why Edelstein’s comeback failed to materialize—for instance, was she actually asked back? And, if so, did negotiations end before they began? Reps for Fox and Edelstein declined to comment.
Are you disappointed Edelstein won't be back?
