"The Good Fight" is an American legal drama produced for CBS' streaming service CBS All Access (later Paramount+). It is the platform's first original scripted series. The series, created by Robert King, Michelle King, and Phil Alden Robinson, is a spin-off and standalone sequel to "The Good Wife", which was created by the Kings. The first season consists of 10 episodes and premiered on February 19, 2017, with the first episode airing on CBS and the following nine episodes on CBS All Access. The series was initially scheduled to air in May 2017, but was moved up after production delays forced CBS to postpone the premiere of the new series "Star Trek: Discovery".
The series follows Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart, as she loses her employment after an enormous financial scam destroys the reputation of her goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie) and Diane's savings, leading them to join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago's preeminent law firms. The series stars Baranski, Leslie, Jumbo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Delroy Lindo, Nyambi Nyambi, Michael Boatman, and Audra McDonald, and features Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters in recurring roles. It is executive produced by Robert King, Michelle King, Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Scott, with Phil Alden Robinson producing and co-writing the first episode.
The 5th season of "The Good Fight" premiered on June 24, 2021. In July 2021, the series was renewed for a 6th season, which in May 2022 was revealed to be its last. It is set to premiere on September 8, 2022.
