Returning: The Good Fight

Michael Sheen joins the cast for season three, on SBS in mid-April.

The third season of US legal drama, The Good Fight will premiere on SBS in mid-April.

Michael Sheen joins the cast for season three which returned in the US two weeks ago.

The world went crazy in the second season of The Good Fight, and now, in season three, the resistance does. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) tries to figure out whether you can resist an unstable administration without becoming unstable yourself, while Adrian Boseman (Delroy Lindo) and Liz Reddick-Lawrence (Audra McDonald) struggle with a new post-factual world where the best story triumphs over the facts.

Meanwhile, Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) balances a new baby with a new love, and Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) finds a new antagonist in Roland Blum (Michael Sheen), a lawyer who is corruption incarnate.

New series regular Michael Sheen (Underworld, Twilight: New Moon), joins the cast of The Good Fight in season three, alongside Christine Baranski (Cruel Intentions, The Big Bang Theory), Cush Jumbo (The Good Wife), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Audra McDonald (Private Practice), Sarah Steele (The Good Wife), Michael Boatman (Gossip Girl), Nyambi Nyambi (Mike & Molly) and Delroy Lindo (Gone in 60 Seconds, Point Break).

It returns with a double-episode premiere will air at 8.30pm Wednesday 17 April before moving to 9.30pm a week later.

  1. In The Good Wife, Michael J Fox portrayed Louis Canning, a slightly eccentric lawyer that gave each of his episodes a quirky edge. Similarly, the role of Elsbeth Tascioni gave Carrie Preston room to deliver to her scenes a refreshing, yet unorthodox, lightness. Unfortunately, in The Good Fight (season 3) Michael Sheen portrays an over-the-top eccentric lawyer that is not believable and, quite frankly, ruins every scene in which he appears. It’s so bad that I’ve erased the character’s name from my memory.

    The writers did well with Louis Canning and Elsbeth Tascioni, but they failed dismally with the Michael Sheen character.
