What’s This TV Show About?
A political thriller airing on the CBS television network, Madam Secretary stars Téa Leoni, Tim Daly, Bebe Neuwirth, Željko Ivanek, Keith Carradine, Sebastian Arcelus, Patina Miller, Geoffrey Arend, Erich Bergen, Kathrine Herzer, Wallis Currie-Wood, and Evan Roe. The drama follows the shrewd, determined Elizabeth McCord (Leoni). As U.S. Secretary of State, she battles office politics, while driving diplomacy and negotiating global deals.
Elizabeth was once a CIA analyst, who exited that post for ethical reasons. She later returned to public life, at the request of President Conrad Dalton (Carradine). He values her apolitical leanings, knowledge of the Middle East, flair for languages, and unconventional thinking. Elizabeth is married to Henry (Daly), a former theology professor who is now an intelligence operative. Together, they’re bringing up three children, which can really test her diplomatic skills.

I love madame secretary. Hope it is renewed .
I would hate to hear this show to end cause I watch it all the time. I love madam Secretary cause I love the actors on there. Please keep it on.
I love Madam Secretary. I’m a Netflix watcher. I think more people would watch if you guys didn’t take so much time off between seasons without telling viewers what’s going on. Please let us know when the seasons are coming back on. It’s a great show and I’m a fan. But thought it went off the air and stopped looking for it. But I watched the whole four season again so that should say something. Please don’t cancel. Advertise. Jen
