One year after the events of the final episode of "The Good Wife." an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart/Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago's top law firms. We also know that Maia hails from one of Chicago's preeminent families, and Diane will be clashing with a rival attorney.
CBS announced today that The Good Fight has been picked up for a fifth season on its 'All Access' streaming service. The Good Wife spin-off returned for its fourth season in April, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic will have its run shortened to just seven episodes, concluding on May 28.
Created by The Good Wife's Robert and Michelle King, The Good Fight takes place following the events of the original series. While most main characters were not carried over, the story continues to follow Diane Lockhart, who has come out of retirement to join a preeminent Chicago law firm along with Lucca Quinn. Other supporting characters from The Good Wife also make occasional appearances.
Look for Season 5 of The Good Fight in 2021.
