The Good Wife is taking a page out of Dexter.

Jennifer Carpenter has booked a guest spot on the CBS legal drama, The Hollywood Reporter confirms, for an episode scheduled to air by the end of the calendar year.

Details are scarce on who Carpenter will be playing, who is best known for playing Dexter's profanity-loving sister Deb Morgan on the Showtime series. Dexter and The Good Wife air in the same time slot -- Sundays at 9 p.m. -- which would make for an interesting head-to-head matchup should the episodes air on the same night. (Both series belong under the same parent company.)

Since it launched, The Good Wife has racked up a rich slate of guest stars, including former House regular Lisa Edelstein, Denis O'Hare, Ana Gasteyer and Martha Plimpton, just to name a few.
