It's looks as if The Good Wife's highly anticipated spin-off series will be hitting CBS this winter. Specifically, the drama that is being headlined by Christine Baranski's Diane Lockhart premieres in February, and will feature another well known actress.
Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey's Rose Leslie will be joining the cast. Leslie plays Baranski's goddaughter, Maia Sindell, an up and coming lawyer. Cush Jumbo and Sarah Steele will also be featured on the yet-to-be-tilted series, which takes place one year after The Good Wife's finale.

Critically acclaimed right from the start, The Good Wife originally appeared on CBS back in 2009, and ran for a total of seven seasons. Margulies headlined the show, which co-starred Baranski, Josh Charles, Chris Noth, Matt Czuchry, and Archie Panjabi. During its 156-episode run, Wife earned a variety of awards, including two Primetime Emmy Awards for Best Actress in Drama Series for Margulies. The show was executive produced by Ridley Scott.
Julianna Margulies originally became a household name thanks to her work on NBC's ER. The actress starred opposite George Clooney and Noah Wyle on the medical drama for six years, which garnered her her first Primetime Emmy Award.
