The Good Fight is shaping up to be a real nail-biter.
CBS has released the first trailer for its forthcoming digital-only Good Wife spinoff and we’re gettingmajor suspense-thriller vibes.
The dark, pulsating promo — which is scored like a horror movie — features fleeting glimpses of the three major players: Good Wife vets Christine Baranski (Diane) and Cush Jumbo (Lucca) as well as franchise rookie, Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie (who’s playing Diane’s lesbian goddaughter Maia).
As previously reported, the offshoot — from Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King — picks up one year after the events of last May’s finale and finds Diane forced to start over at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms (where Lucca also works) after a huge financial scam has wiped out her entire savings (and destroyed the reputation of Maia).
The ensemble also includes fellow Good Wife fave Sarah Steele (Marissa), as well as 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 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 (on subsequent Sundays). And we repeat: Following premiere night, all new episodes will be available on subsequent Sundays only on CBS All Access.
