What’s This TV Show About?
A CBS political thriller, Madam Secretary stars Téa Leoni, Tim Daly, Sara Ramirez, 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.

What do you think? Are you glad that the Madam Secretary TV show has been renewed for a sixth season? Would you have been upset if CBS had cancelled this TV series instead?
Perhaps you should change the timeslot. It is an excellent show but is always competing with other good shows.
Was so sad when Madame Secretary was cancelled after season 5. But by accident saw that there was a season six. Please keep this show going it’s absolutely brilliant. There are still plenty of story lines that can be written. Why do brilliant series keep getting cancelled?
Hated to see Madam Secretary canceled
My husband and I faithfully watch Madam Secretary every week its on ! This country needs more shows like this positive role model for women. It even puts politics in a more positive and intelligent light. Please bring back Madame Secretary as Madam President in 2020 and let her viewers enjoy how she solves world and national problems and allows us to follow a dynamic first family. Leone does a wonderful job as does the rest of the cast.
I will be monumentally distressed if Madam Secretary is not renewed! It is well-written, timely, wonderfully acted and a highlight of my television-watching on a weekly basis! Having the family leaving on a cross-country train trip and “ride off into the sunset” as if it was an old-time Western might have been clever but it was a shock to realize that that might have been the final episode! Please do NOT do that to this high-quality, intriguing, entertaining production!
My husband and I faithfully watch this show. I was hoping maybe they would bring it back as maybe Madam president! I think Leone is straight forward and I love her brassiness!
