A follow-up to The Good Wife, the drama follows Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie), the goddaughter of Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), who becomes enveloped in a major scandal that ruins her reputation and her godmother’s finances. The cast also includes Cush Jumbo, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele, and Justin Bartha. Season one just premiered on CBS All Access on February 19th.
In the interview, the Kings said some events from The Good Wife will be addressed on The Good Fight:
Some events will be addressed – for example how Diane was impacted by the slap. Will she forgive her estranged husband, Kurt McVeigh? Has it made Diane more jaded, more suspicious? Regarding Alicia… we discussed with Julianna the idea of visiting, but we all agreed: no matter what we did, that would then become the true end to the Good Wife story, and that’s unfortunate.”
Later, the two revealed there are plans to bring back more Good Wife characters:
Not so much in the first season. We didn’t want the new firm to be so dependent on the characters in the old firm. If there is a second season, we want to bring them back into our orbit.”
