The Good Fight, a spinoff from CBS’ acclaimed drama The Good Wife, was the first original scripted series to launch on CBS’ SVOD and live streaming service in February 2017. The drama, which has been well received by critics, has tackled current events, including the Donald Trump presidency.
“The Good Fight is a perfect example of what we strive for a CBS All Access original series to be: thought-provoking, boundary-pushing and, most of all, incredibly entertaining,” said Julie McNamara, EVP, Original Content, CBS All Access. “We can’t wait to see what Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the incomparable cast will bring to audiences in season three.”
The Good Fight, from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.
The entire first season and first nine episodes of season two of The Good Fight are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. In the second season of the series, the world is going insane, and the Chicago murder rate is on the rise. Amidst the insanity, Diane, Lucca, Maia and the rest of the law firm find themselves under psychological assault when a client at another firm kills his lawyer for overcharging.
Robert and Michelle King serve as showrunners and executive producers of The Good Fight, which they co-created with Phil Alden Robinson. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Liz Glotzer and Brooke Kennedy also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions and distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
On CBS All Access, The Good Fight was followed by Star Trek: Discovery and the service’s first comedy series, No Activity, both of which have been renewed for a second season. Coming up are new scripted series Strange Angel, premiering on June 14, as well as One Dollar, The Twilight Zone and Tell Me a Story, which are in various stages of development, pre-production or production.
