It’s a Freddie reunion!
EW has learned exclusively that Freddie Prinze Jr. has signed on to guest star in an episode of the upcoming Lifetime drama Witches of East End, in a part that will reunite him with former Freddie co-star Madchen Amick.
Prinze will play Leo Wingate, a gallant and sweetly shy entomologist who falls head over heels for Wendy Beauchamp (Amick). The scholar is said to specialize in rare and exotic insects, and he soon begins to wonder whether Wendy is more interested in his body or his bugs. He is set to guest star in the fourth episode, with more episodes possible.
On Freddie, a 2005-06 comedy which starred and was created by Prinze, Amick played the sister-in-law of the title character. Following the cancellation of that show, Prinze’s next high-profile TV gig was on Fox’s 24, where he played Cole Ortiz during the eighth season. Recently, Prinze also booked a guest spot on the season premiere of Bones.
Witches of East End premieres Sunday, Oct. 6 at 10 p.m.
