Though The Good Wife hasn’t been officially renewed yet, it seems like all but a sure thing. Deadline reports that London-based actress Cush Jumbo, who recently starred on Broadway opposite Hugh Jackman, is being signed to have a recurring role on the seventh season of The Good Wife. This will mark Jumbo’s US television debut.
It was announced in October that Archie Panjabi is leaving the series at the send of year six so Jumbo could be joining the cast as a new investigator.
Season-to-season, Good Wife is currently averaging a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.87 million viewers. That’s down by about 13% in the demo but up by 5% in total viewers. The series has never been one of the network’s best-performing shows but it does have a devout following and has attracted critical attention and awards.
What do you think? Do you think The Good Wife will be renewed for a seventh season? Should it be cancelled instead? Is it time for this series to end?
