The famous actor hinted at return appearances on the show back in a May interview saying “The key to the deal was that it “the stint probably won’t be one time,” “I said, ‘It has to be a recurring role. Maybe three appearances, something like that.”

Newhart won the Emmy for his first appearance as Professor Proton, who was hired by the Sheldon to hang out with them in their apartment.

Nye recently competed on and was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars.

Newhart’s return to The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
