CBS has now ordered that Good Wife spin-off starring Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) for 2017.
In addition to Baranski and Jumbo, the new series will introduce new characters and pick up one year after the events of the recent finale.
Creators Robert and Michelle King are set to co-write the first episode but will not showrun the series.
They will co-create and exec produce with Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams), Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Brooke Kennedy and Liz Glotzer.
CBS Television Studios president David Stapf said in a statement, “The quality of The Good Wife has always rivaled anything on television and we’re excited to tell more stories with some of the brilliant characters Robert and Michelle King created.”
The series is produced for CBS-owned All Access digital subscription service for 2017, but could potentially be picked up by TEN.
