March 15 (UPI) — The Good Wife spinoff The Good Fight has been renewed for a second season.
The next run of episodes in the Christine Baranski-led, legal drama will begin streaming via CBS All Access in 2018.
“We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal,” Marc DeBevoise, president and chief operating officer of CBS Interactive, said in a statement Wednesday. “This series and its characters are just beginning and we can’t wait to see where Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the amazing cast take The Good Fight next.”
Starring Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele and Justin Bartha, the show takes place one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife.
“In The Good Fight, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms,” press notes explained.
