Laurie Metcalf, Christine Baranski to return to TBBT April 6, 2015

Laurie Metcalf, Christine Baranski to return to TBBT

Laurie Metcalf and Christine Baranski will be reprising their motherly roles as Mary Cooper and Dr. Beverly Hofstadter, respectively, in the penultimate episode of The Big Bang Theory's eighth season, TVLine.com today reported in an exclusive story.

According to TVLine, the pair will appear in the April 30 episode of the show, though it's not clear if they will share any scenes together. Christine Baranski stars on CBS's The Good Wife, which films on the East Coast, and has lately appeared over Skype on the show as the overlapping taping schedules make it difficult for her to fly out and record scenes for The Big Bang Theory.

Laurie Metcalf last appeared as Sheldon's mom in the Season 7 episode The Mommy Observation, while Baranski appeared in the seventh season finale The Status Quo Combustion.
