TVLine Items: Good Wife Adds to Final Season, White Queen Sequel and More

The Good Wife is, quite literally, going out with a bang — and Blair Underwood will be a part of the turmoil.

The L.A. Law vet is set to guest-star on the CBS drama’s final season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Underwood — who most recently recurred on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — will play Henry, a middle-class motel owner still mourning the death of his teenage daughter, who was struck by a random bullet. Determined to fight back against gun violence in his community, Henry finds himself in court defending his methods.

As previously reported, neither Will nor Kalinda will appear in the show’s remaining episodes, but co-creators Robert and Michelle King are reaching out to other past guest stars to make final appearances.

    When I saw the headline, first thing I thought about is more episodes. Guess I’ll settle for Blair.
