CBS has been a buzz about their upcoming Good Wife spin-off series, The Good Fight which premieres on February 19 on CBS All Access. The first full official trailer has been released and this show looks GREAT!
Originally, I was not a fan of the CBS All Access angle of this series – being available only on their streaming app after episode 1 airs on CBS – but after watching the 2 minute promo, I’m more inclined to believe that they’re taking a page out of Netflix’s playbook, allowing more freedom on platform that doesn’t have to follow the same strict network rules. Can’t wait to see the show!

According to E! the series follows Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) who retires from Lockhart and Lee, but a financial scam sees her savings wiped out. What’s she do to? She, and goddaughter Maia played by Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie, join a new firm that also happens to be the home of Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo). Financial ruin isn’t the only issue Diane has to deal with—she’s also estranged from husband Kurt McVeigh (Gary Cole) when the series picks up one-year after the events of The Good Wife series finale.
