If “The Good Wife” were to go the spinoff route a la “Breaking Bad” or “The Closer,” what character would you most like to see lead their own show? What would the new series be about? We want to hear your best (and craziest) spinoff ideas!February 8, 2016 at 2:08 pm #367577
Elsbeth Tascioni, no question! Carrie Preston!February 8, 2016 at 2:16 pm #367578
Christine Baranski’s Diane finally becomes a judge and Gary Cole’s Kurt becomes a more prevalent character so they can really leverage their different political views in the nuanced and balanced way The Good Wife has so successfully done. It would be a great way to incorporate all of the great peripheral characters into the series, too, trying cases against each other in Diane’s courtroom.

Spinoff idea: Something original that has nothing to do with this show.February 8, 2016 at 3:43 pm #367580
I’m about to spinoff some side eye to some of y’all 😉 hahaha
I love the one about Elsbeth. How about Robin as her investigator! That could be fun.
Or David Hyde Pierce as the Chicago State’s Attorney.
Love the idea of Diane as a judge with Gary Cole being a regular. I saw some posting online saying we need a NYC set legal show to be able to use the great treasure trove of theater actors!
Ooh, something with Audra MacDonald!February 8, 2016 at 3:43 pm #367581

To not make any spinoff of this show
One that stars Nick’s favorite actors. 😉February 8, 2016 at 6:12 pm #367584

We all know that the best spinoff ever would be “The Incredibly Unreal Sounding But Totally True Adventures of Kalinda Sharma,” but that ship has long sailed away. Back to Elsbeth, she could run her own law firm of lawyers quirkier than she is, but that might turn into some awful “Boston Legal” kinda shit. Maybe work for Lockhart, Agos, & Lee? Or If she partnered up with a “straight woman” again (plz no Jill Hennessy ever again!) as law partners, this might be where Christine Baranski could shine. I’d even accept Elsbeth as a “Monk”-like private investigator helping law enforcement solve especially tricky crimes in novel ways. She’s disillusioned with practicing law for some reason and wants to make a difference from the inside. So many peripheral characters could be given a spotlight in these last episodes, but I don’t know about headlining.February 8, 2016 at 8:25 pm #367586
Does no one want to see Grace’s adventures in college?February 8, 2016 at 9:03 pm #367587
A series chronicling Lemond Bishop’s growing drug empire, transitioning into him running for governor with Eli as his campaign manager.February 10, 2016 at 7:33 pm #367588
My thought was a series focused on Diane and Cary’s life after Lockhart-Agos-Lee has been dissolved and closed. Perhaps they each go their seperate ways. Diane becomes a judge; Cary opens up his own boutique firm and each of them attempt to find themselves again.
This could allow us to learn a lot more about Cary, perhaps even see his family life; and we could see more about Diane’s personal life too.
