The Good Fight: Gary Cole's Kurt Returning for Good Wife Spinoff

After a long day fighting The Good Fight, Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart will have a fine mustache to come home to.

Gary Cole will recur on CBS All Access’ spinoff of The Good Wife, TVLine has learned, reprising the role of Diane’s husband Kurt McVeigh.

Of course, it might be a bit premature to refer to Kurt as Diane’s husband. As you may recall, Kurt was forced to disclose details of his affair in court on The Good Wife series finale (hence that slap!), so the couple’s future technically remains in question.

Also appearing on The Good Fight are returning favorites Cush Jumbo and Sarah Steele, as well as new additions Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Bernadette Peters and Paul Guilfoyle. The spinoff premieres in Feb. 2017 on CBS, before moving exclusively to CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service.
