Several TV series will be making room for more characters this fall, including Castle, The Good Wife, New Girl, Growing Up Fisher, Royal Pains and Witches of East End. Read on to find out more.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Lisa Edelstein Joins Castle

According to TV Line, Lisa Edelstein, best known for playing Dr. Lisa Cuddy on House, will be appearing on Castle's sixth season for a multi-episode arc. She will play a tough Federal Investigator named Rachel McCord, whose presence will affect Beckett's outlook about her future. Beckett will definitely struggle with her decision next season as she considers whether she should take a great job opportunity in Washington D.C. while dealing with Rick's marriage proposal. The question is: Will she choose love or career?


Jeffrey Tambor to Guest Star on The Good Wife

Arrested Development star Jefferey Tambor will be gracing the fifth season premiere of The Good Wife, which is set to air on Sunday, September 29. The Huffington Post reports that he will play "a judge who's in a race against the clock for a case involving the death penalty." Aside from Tambor, fans of the CBS series can also expect Melissa George, Juliet Rylance and Ben Rappaport to drop by the new season.


Damon Wayans Jr. Returns to New Girl

Damon Wayans Jr. may have only appeared in the pilot episode of New Girl but he's made quite an impression as Coach, a former athlete-turned-personal trainer who once lived in the apartment as Jess, Nick, and Schmidt's roommate. Not surprisingly, he's been tapped to return to the FOX comedy series now that ABC has officially pulled the plug on his sitcom, Happy Endings

"I would be surprised if he doesn't come back for a while. There would be such funny episodes with the Coach seeing what's happened in the past two years since he's [been] gone," Jake Johnson, who plays Nick on New Girl, told TV Line  last month. 

TV Line first reported the casting while E! News confirmed the actor's return, hinting that he'll be appearing in at least six episodes. FOX, however, has yet to comment on news.


Jenna Elfman Joins Growing Up Fisher, Guest Stars on Royal Pains

On the heels of the cancellation of 1600 Penn, Jenna Elfman has landed yet another NBC comedy series. This time she'll be playing Joyce Fisher, the wife of J.K. Simmons' blind character Mel Fisher on Growing Up Fisher. The half-hour comedy also features Eli Baker, Ava Deluca-Verley and Jason Bateman as the narrator. Additionally, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the Dharma and Greg star will appear in the August 28 episode of USA Network's Royal Pains as a reformed party girl who offers family advice to the Lawson family.


Jason George Cast on Witches of East End

Jason George appears to be everywhere these days. Aside from playing Miranda Bailey's husband on Grey's Anatomy, he appears on the ABC steamy drama series Mistresses. But according to TV Line, fans can also expect the 41-year-old actor to appear in Lifetime's upcoming series, Witches of East End. He'll play Adam, the love interest of Rachel Boston's Ingrid.  The show includes Julia Ormond,Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Madchen Amick.
