Despite a short season 4, there still is a good fight left in Diane Lockhart
The Good Wife spin-off and a sequel were cut short owing to the coronavirus pandemic. The production was interrupted and the series was forced to shut down after filming just seven episodes as opposed to the usual ten.
The Good Fight isn’t the first to be interrupted owing to the pandemic as the entire Hollywood industry and other cinema industries around the world halt or, even worse cancel, production due to the current health threat.
But much to fans love and support towards the show, The Good Fight isn’t one of the many to get canned. Instead, the show received a green light from CBS All Access for a fifth season!
Creators Robert and Michelle King in an interview revealed how they felt “absurd” to leave the story in between. Thankfully, they didn’t have to worry much as CBS All Access renewed the legal web drama for a fifth season.
The creators further revealed that they were “thrilled” to hear the news as they already know what story to tell: It’s like getting the answers to the SAT ahead of time.
Being one of the most acclaimed, both critically and by audiences, The Good Fight was bound to be renewed. It wasn’t the end for Diane.
There are no official dates set in stone for the season five release but given the current scenario, one can expect the upcoming season to premiere in late 2021 or early 2022.
In the lead playing the role of attorney at law, Diane Lockhart is Christine Baranski. The 15-time Emmy Award nominee received six of these nominations consecutively for her portrayal of Diana.
Playing the role of Lucca Quinn, Diane’s associate who works at Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart is Cush Jumbo. Rose Leslie portrays Dianne’s goddaughter, Maia Rindell, an associate along with Diane and Lucca.
