The Good Wife ran seven seasons from 2009 to 2016. It was often a very good show, especially considering it was on CBS, which usually likes its shows to be cookie-cutter procedurals. Oh, it frustrated fans quite a bit there towards the end, but... it often had smart writing, great performances, and strong characters.

A spin-off starts in February, but only the first episode will be aired on the broadcast network. The next nine episodes will be on their subscription service, CBS All-Access.

Christine Baranski played Diane Lockhart in all seven seasons of TGW. Cush Jumbo's Lucca Quinn was a Season 7 cast addition. Sarah Steele recurred as Marissa Gold in 22 episodes (after being introduced in 2.15).

Others from TGW that will be making appearances are Gary Cole (Diane's husband, Kurt), Zach Grenier (David Lee), Jerry Adler (Howard Lyman), and Michael Boatman (Julius Cain). More haven't been announced, but I expect it's very likely we'll see Alan Cumming (Eli, Marissa's father) at some point, and... there were a number of recurring attorneys and judges (and clients?) that I'll bet they'll use again.

Newcomers are Rose Leslie (Ygritte on Game of Thrones) as Diane's goddaughter Maia, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel (Rachel on Justified), and Justin Bartha. Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters will be recurring as Maia's parents.

The logline -- It's one year later, and Diane is forced out of Lockhart & Lee after an enormous financial scam destroys the reputation of her goddaughter Maia and Diane's savings, leading them to join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.

(Okay, except we left off with Lucca at L/L WITH Diane...)
