2016 saw ‘The Good Wife’ bow out in fittingly dramatic fashion.
And thankfully for fans missing the hit legal drama, the story continues with CBS‘ official spin-off ‘The Good Fight.’
Set to debut in February, the series focusses on popular character Dianne Lockhart (played stellarly by Christine Baranski).
Picking up a year after the events of May’s curtain call, the show sees Diane forced to start over at one of Chicago’s top law firms after a huge financial scam wiped out her entire savings.
She joins fellow ‘Good Wife’er Lucca Quinn (played by Cush Jumbo) at the company and embarks on a whole new rollercoaster.
Peep the first look trailer below…
Yes! The show’s balance of the familiar and the foreign looks all sorts of juicy.
We will be perched when ‘The Good Fight’ arrives on February 19th at 8/7c.
Interestingly, it’ll make its big debut simultaneously on CBS and its much touted new streaming service CBS Access. Thereafter, new episodes will premiere each Sunday on the latter.
Jury’s out on how the digital-only angle will work out, but we’re just glad that one of the best TV shows of the modern era is continuing in some form.
