It’s been eight months since the CBS drama “The Good Wife” left the airwaves with its divisive finale, but the story will soon continue in a new spinoff of the series exclusively for CBS’ streaming service CBS All Access. “The Good Fight” will take place a year after the events of the finale and will follow Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and her mentor and goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie) as they struggle with the devastating aftermath of a financial scam. The two are forced out of Lockhart & Lee and as such must join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms. The series co-stars Delroy Lindo (“Malcolm X”), Sarah Steele (“Margaret”), Justin Bartha (“The Hangover”) and Erica Tazel (“Justified”). Watch a trailer for the series below.
The series was created and executive produced by Robert and Michelle King. Aside from creating “The Good Wife,” the two have also created two short-lived series: “In Justice” in 2006 and most recently “BrainDead,” which premiered in June 2016 and ended in September that same year.
“The Good Fight” premieres Sunday, February 19 at 8 p.m. ET on-demand on CBS All Access and on the CBS Network that same night also at 8 p.m. ET. CBS All Access will also offer subscribers the second episode of the series on-demand that same night. After premiere night, all new episodes will be available weekly on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers.
