Co-star Christine Baranski also weighed in on the show featuring more storylines inspired by real-life headlines.
"We're dealing with abortion, gay rights, gun control," Christine said. "We did a Bitcoin episode before anyone knew what Bitcoin was."
At times the show could be considered ahead of its time. Just as Alicia has won the race for state's attorney on the fictional TV show, Hillary Clinton is expected to announce her candidacy for President of the United States over the weekend.
