The Good Fight Season 1 Granted Trial Run on CBS This Summer

The Good Fight Moving To CBS

Diane Lockhart is returning to broadcast television. The 10-episode first season of The Good Fight, CBS All Access’ critically acclaimed spinoff of The Good Wife, will air Sundays on CBS this summer in an effort to get both the show and the streaming service on more people’s radars, TVLine has confirmed.

The first two episodes will air Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c, followed by Episodes 3 and 4 on Sunday, June 23 at the same time. Beginning on Sunday, June 30, The Good Fight moves to 10 pm, where it will air its remaining episodes.

To accommodate The Good Fight, the second season premiere of CBS’ Instinct — which stars Alan Cumming, another Good Wife vet — has been pushed to Sunday, June 30 at 9 pm.

(Note: A previous version of this story suggested that CBS would be airing The Good Fight‘s third season.)

In addition to Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo and Sarah Steele, all of whom reprise their characters from the original series, The Good Fight also stars Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Delroy Lindo (Blood & Oil) and Audra McDonald (Private Practice), among others.

To date, 33 episodes of The Good Fight are available to stream on CBS All Access; the third season finale was released on May 16. The series has been nominated for a handful of major awards since it premiered in Feb. 2017, including two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
