The Good… Attorneys?
News that CBS is adjourning The Good Wife in May has triggered your standard-issue spinoff scuttlebutt, with Matt Czuchry’s Cary and Christine Baranski’s Diane seen as two possible centerpieces of such an offshoot.
During a conference call with reporters Monday to discuss the show’s final nine episodes, Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King weighed in on the possibility of the franchise living on in some form. Short answer: There’s been talk!
“At this point, nothing’s off the table,” Michelle said. “Sure, maybe, we’re not saying no to anything.”
Added Robert: “What would be fun is to find a way to spin off a [cast member] that wasn’t at the center, who we wish we had more time with. The show always centered around the Alicia character. What’s appealing would be pursuing a different ensemble.”
Regarding the timetable for any new Good Wife series, Robert cited the show’s “infrastructure in New York” as one reason to get a potential spinoff off the ground ASAP, adding, “It would be great not to lose that.”
What do you think? If a Good Wife spinoff were to happen, which supporting characters would be at the top of your wish list?
