Reserve your ringside seat now: The Good Fight will commence in roughly two months.
CBS has announced that its all-digital Good Wife spinoff will make its broadcast debut on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8/7c. The premiere will bow simultaneously on the network’s streaming service CBS All Access, which will exclusively host all of Season 1’s remaining episodes. And we repeat: Following premiere night, all new episodes will be available on subsequent Sundays only on CBS All Access.
As previously reported, 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 offshoot, 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, Diane and Marissa join Lucca at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
The ensemble also includes Good Wife newbies Delroy Lindo (Chicago Code), Paul Guilfoyle (CSI), Bernadette Peters (Smash), Justin Bartha (The New Normal) and Erica Tazel (Justified). Additionally, Gary Cole will reprise his role as Diane’s hubby Kurt McVeigh on a recurring basis and Zach Grenier (David) and Jerry Adler (Howard) will guest star in the premiere.
The Good Fight‘s debut was moved up from its originally scheduled Spring 2017 launch to fill the void left by Star Trek: Discovery, which was delayed from January 2017 to May 2017.
