This marks the first renewal for CBS’ streaming service’s first original drama series.
“We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “This series and its characters are just beginning and we can’t
wait to see where [creators] Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the amazing cast take The Good Fight next.”
The hour-long drama picks up one year after the events of the series finale of The Good Wife. In The Good Fight, a massive financial scam destroys the reputation of a young lawyer, Miaia Rindell (Rose Leslie), while also wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane’s life savings (Baranski). Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.

Baranski spoke with ET recently about why she's excited to keep playing Diane on The Good Fight.
"She's such a wonderful, dignified, intelligent, powerful woman who weathers the ups and downs with terrific aplomb and grace -- like a lot of powerful women out there. Many of whom are saying, 'Thank God we’re seeing a woman like Diane out there on television," Baranski said. "How wonderful to put that out into the world -- that there are women like that still fighting the good fight."
The Good Fight premieres new episodes every Sunday on CBS All Access.
