Carrie Preston Joins Good Wife Spinoff, Reprising Role as Elsbeth Tascioni

Elsbeth Tascioni is climbing back into the legal ring!

Good Wife favorite Carrie Preston is joining spinoff series The Good Fight for multiple episodes, TVLine has confirmed. She will reprise her role as socially-stunted attorney Elsbeth for multiple episodes.

As our sister site Deadline points out, series co-creators Robert and Michelle King wanted Preston to return to The Good Wife for a major arc during its final season, but her role on NBC’s short-lived Crowded limited her to appearing in just one episode.

The Good Fight premieres on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8/7c on both CBS (the network) and CBS All Access (the digital offshoot). After the premiere, CBS All Access will exclusively host all of Season 1’s remaining episodes (with a new installment dropping every Sunday).
