It's the end of an era for the Fox drama House. Olivia Wilde, also known as Thirteen, is saying farewell to the series. The actress, who's spent the past year on the big screen (Tron Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, The Change-Up), will bid her final adieu on Monday's episode entitled "Charity Case."

Last season, House (Hugh Laurie) experienced his fair share of personal and professional setbacks. He ruined his relationships with Wilson and Cuddy (He drove his car through her living room!), and has become a slave to his own drug-induced brilliance. Perhaps, the reappearance of Thirteen could be a form of salvation for the tarnished doctor?

Olivia Wilde told E! News, "There's a few good reasons for [Thirteen] not to be working anymore as a doctor. She's had a disease for a number of years and she doesn't necessarily have that many years left. At this point she's struggling with that dilemma. But of course it's always up to House. No matter how much he drives them crazy, he's still the most compelling and dynamic person to work for. And ultimately, it's resolved for her."

Aside from Wilde's return, House will play doctor to another familiar face -- Wentworth Miller. Miller is a Fox alum who appeared for four seasons on the drama Prison Break and went on to star in the horror blockbuster Resident Evil: Afterlife. This week, he'll guest star on House as Benjamin, a man who collapses after making an unusually large charitable donation.

House airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Fox
