The legal drama, which stars Julianna Margulies, aired its series finale this past Sunday after seven seasons.
When asked if they’d be open to a spin-off, the Kings said “it’s a little early” to tell, but they are interested:
Michelle: It’s the morning after the finale. I think it’s a little early. [Laughs]
Robert: Can we just say we love these characters? Not just Alicia, but a lot of these characters feel very real to us and you could almost imagine a spin-off with any of them and it would be thrilling.”
Robert later shared his hopes regarding the legacy of The Good Wife:
I thought you could build a show around a complex, real woman. That doesn’t mean the melodramatic turns to keep alive. Yes, we’ve had our share of little bombshells within the show, but we’ve always tried, at least in the main plot, stay to what seven years of someone’s life might play like. Except for the lack of paperwork in the law office. [Laughs] So, for me, I think it would be lovely if there were more shows that hewed closer to reality. You’re seeing that a lot with comedy, not as much with drama. Drama, it seems like, has to go a little wild.”
What do you think? Did you watch The Good Wife‘s series finale? Would you watch a spin-off? Which character should get a spin-off?
