The Good Wife fans will be happy to know that the spin-off of the show will be hitting the audience sooner than they thought. More precisely, the TV show will be launched on CBS All Access in February next year. The first episode, which features Cush Jumbo in the role of Lucca Quinn, and Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart, will be first aired on CBS. After that, the show will move entirely on the streaming site, CBS All Access.
We should be glad that we are getting the TV show we wanted this soon, because initially it was supposed to be released in May. However ,the May release date is now reserved for Star Trek: Discovery, so that producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller will have more time to develop it. The strategy for Star Trek will be the same for The Good Wife, the first episode will hit the CBS network before going to All Access.
The spin-off will be picking up a year after the events that took place in the series finale. The producers are Robert and Michelle King, who also worked on the original series that found its end earlier in 2016. The two return both as executive producers and as showrunners, together with Phil Alden Robinson, who is also a co-writer and a executive producer for the first episode.
Besides Jumbo and Baranski, there will also be many actors who will work on the project. Carrie Preston and Jess Weixler have previously expressed their wish to appear in the spin-off, together with Archie Panjabi, who did not exclude the possibility to return in the role of Kalinda. However, she did not seem too sure about it, saying she will see at the right time. It remains to be seen whether the spin-off will be as good as the original story and how many fans will get hooked by it.
