The Good Wife alums Zach Grenier and Jerry Adler will reprise their respective roles as elder legal statesman David Lee and Howard Lyman as guest stars in the premiere of the upcoming spinoff. As of now, there are no plans for them to do additional episodes beyond the premiere.
The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
Grenier and Adler join stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters and Erica Tazel.
The series will premiere in February with a special broadcast on the CBS Television Network, then move exclusively to CBS All Access, CBS’ VOD and live streaming service. Executive Producer Brooke Kennedy is directing the premiere episode. The Good Wife creators/executive producers Robert King and Michelle King are executive producers and showrunners for The Good Fight. The spinoff is produced by King Size Productions and Scott Free Productions. The Kings are repped by Paradigm.
Grenier and Adler’s castings were first reported by TVLine.
