Another pair of Good Wife alums are spoiling for a Good Fight.
Zach Grenier and Jerry Adler are set to reprise their respective roles as elder legal statesman David Lee and Howard Lyman in the forthcoming spinoff, which premieres in February 2017 on CBS before moving exclusively to the network’s streaming service CBS All Access.
The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of last May’s finale and stars Good Wife vets Christine Baranski (Diane), Cush Jumbo (Lucca) and Sarah Steele (Marissa). In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of Diane’s goddaughter, Maia (Game of Thrones‘ Rose Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out Diane’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
Both Grenier and Adler are set to guest star in the premiere.
The ensemble also includes Good Wife newbies Delroy Lindo (Chicago Code), Paul Guilfoyle (CSI), Bernadette Peters (Smash) and Erica Tazel (Justified). Additionally, Gary Cole will reprise his role as Diane’s hubby Kurt McVeigh on a recurring basis.
Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King return as showrunners and EPs on The Good Fight. Longtime Good Wife director Brooke Kennedy, meanwhile, is set to helm the premiere.
