“Practicing the law you don’t go on instinct. You wait, you listen and watch.” We’re getting the first look at The Good Fight, the upcoming The Good Wife spinoff series on CBS All Access. The clip will air during tonight’s episode of Madam Secretary on CBS.
Toplined by the original series’ co-stars Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of the final episode of The Good Wife. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s preeminent law firms.
The series, from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, also stars Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Erica Tazel, Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters. Other original Good Wife alums set to return for The Good Fight include Sarah Steele, who is a regular, and Zach Grenier, Jerry Adler and Gary Cole, who will guest star. Carrie Preston also is set for a guest arc, reprising her role as quirky but brilliant attorney Elsbeth Tascioni.
The Good Fight will premiere Sunday, February 19 with a special broadcast on CBS, then move exclusively to CBS All Access, CBS’ VOD and live streaming service. The spinoff is produced by King Size Productions and Scott Free Productions.
