NEW YORK — Kristin Chenoweth says injuries she sustained while filming the CBS legal drama “The Good Wife” last month will prevent her from returning to the show.

In a statement issued Monday she expresses “deep regret” she’ll be unable to return in her recurring role “at this time.” She’ll appear in the season premiere, airing Sept. 30.

The 44-year-old actress was hit on the head by a piece of equipment while on the show’s New York City set July 11. She was briefly hospitalized.

She says she’s “getting better slowly.”

Chenoweth won a Tony Award for her role in Broadway’s “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and an Emmy for her work on “Pushing Daisies.” Last season she starred in the short-lived series “GCB.”
