CBS All Access just released a full-length trailer for the upcoming second season of The Good Fight, premiering on Sunday, March 4 (opposite the Oscars, for some inexplicable reason):

Looks fantastic, and hoping the Kings can give Baranski an entire powerhouse episode submission (because you know they can, and did, many times, for Margulies) that she lacked in the first season–other than the Pilot. I tuned into this hoping to finally have Baranski be the leading star of the TV series, and she was often neglected to the side.February 6, 2018 at 9:49 am #1202488575
And it probably won’t matter airing against the Oscars, since they put the episode up around midnight, I think?February 6, 2018 at 11:17 am #1202488635

Although I agree, I don’t think at this point in time it will make a difference for her awards prospects, to be honest. With all of last year’s Drama Actress contenders at the Emmys eligible to return this year (as far as I can tell), it seems unlikely that Baranski unseats anybody, especially lacking the increased awareness she had with the launch of the first season last time around. Regardless, it would be great to see Baranski take the reins more this season. The trailer certainly looks great!

March 4 marks Hollywood’s (and Gold Derby’s) biggest night, but it also marks the premiere of the second season of The Good Fight:
Episode: Day 408

The premiere was fast-paced and had a lot going on, but that final scene was beautiful (a little jarring to see Diane like that, but still beautiful nonetheless, and what a great cover of “But Not for Me”). Christine Baranski was excellent. She conveyed so much with her just her face and eyes in that ending scene.March 17, 2018 at 9:47 pm #1202515012
Episode: Day 422
Synopsis: The firm represents a woman assaulted on a reality dating show; Diane fears she may be the next lawyer targeted by violence.
Christine Lahti and Rob Reiner guest star.

I really enjoyed the season premiere, especially given how much table-setting they had to do, and I thought the second episode was even better! I’m glad to see this part of Maia’s saga (ostensibly) wrapped up, though I hope we continue to see appearances from Bernadette Peters and Paul Guilfoyle. Audra McDonald has already been a great addition to the series and I’m looking forward to her going head-to-head with Baranski later in the season, as it looks like they’re teasing.

Really good episode, but it seems that the rest of the season will gonna be epic.March 18, 2018 at 9:30 pm #1202515434
Excellent episode all around tonight, from the ricin scare to the all too topical and disturbing case of the week. Baranski, Sarah Steele, and Nyambi Nyambi were standouts. I also continue to love Christine Lahti in this role. I hope her new series, should it get picked up, won’t interfere too much in future appearances here; she’s one of my absolute favorite recurring characters. Speaking of, Gary Cole, Carrie Preston, and Mamie Gummer all guest starring next week!

Baranski was fantastic! That “F-U” ending ranks up there as an iconic Diane moment.March 19, 2018 at 10:41 am #1202515726
Lead actress drama is hard to enter even for Baranski (Foy, Moss, Moore, Davis, Gyllenhaal, Danes, Maslany, Russell, Linney, Wood…who else?)March 23, 2018 at 1:57 pm #1202518319
Mike Colter will return to his The Good Wife role of Lemond Bishop in a guest arc this season of The Good Fight:
Very exciting news! It’ll be interesting to see if they mention Kalinda by name in any of the episodes in which he appears.
