CBS All Access made a big splash in February with “The Good Fight,” a spin-off of “The Good Wife,” which had been a Sunday night staple on CBS for seven years. Word came Wednesday that the streaming service has renewed “The Good Fight” for another round, which will air in 2018.
Unlike rival streaming services like Amazon and Netflix, which make all of the episodes of a season available at the same time, CBS All Access has been releasing one episode of “The Good Fight” each Sunday.
In making the announcement, CBS Interactive president and COO Marc DeBevoise said, “We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal. This series and its characters are just beginning, and we can’t wait to see where Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the amazing cast take ‘The Good Fight’ next.”
On “The Good Fight,” Christine Baranski reprises her role as legal eagle Diane Lockhart. The action picks up a year after “The Good Wife” ends, with Diane’s goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie, “Game of Thrones”) embroiled in a financial scam that has destroyed her reputation as a lawyer and Diane’s life savings. “Good Wife” alum Cush Jumbo is back, joined by Justin Bartha, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele and Erica Tazel.
