Led by returning Good Wife stars Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, The Good Fight will pick up one year after the events of the season seven finale. Rose Leslie,Delroy Lindo, Bernadette Peters, Paul Guilfoyle and Erica Tazel are the new faces joining the Good Wife universe, while Sarah Steele will reprise her role as Marissa Gold, Eli Gold’s daughter.
In the new series, a huge financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia (Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out her mentor, Diane Lockhart’s (Baranski), savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s top law firms.
“[Diane Lockhart] was one of those characters, other than Will Gardner, that really seemed to pull audiences in,” Robert told ET at the time. “There’s a certain solidity to her and a certain sense that she commands a room , but also there’s a sensitivity beneath it. So it was a no-brainer to bring her onto the spinoff.”
