Being billed as a Good Wife spinoff, the new series will bring back Christine Baranski (aka Diane Lockhart) and Cush Jumbo (aka Lucca Quinn) and pick up one year after the events of the finale (or The Slap Heard ‘Round the World).
While we can certainly expect new characters to be introduced, one question remains: Could we see the return of Good Wife favorites? (Looking at you, Eli, Cary … why not even Kalinda?)
CBS is heaping praise on The Good Wife -- as it should, since it won so many Emmys! -- with CBS Digital Media Executive VP and General Manager Marc DeBevoise calling it “one of our most-watched series across digital platforms” and promising that the new show “is a perfect addition” to CBS All Access.
The key auspices are back for the spinoff as well, including creators Robert and Michelle King, who will be doing double duty with their new CBS summer series, Brain Dead.
