A recently canceled drama series is being talked about as a possible source of a spinoff series. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the creators of CBS’s “The Good Wife” talked about the possibility Monday.
The network broke the news during Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast that the heavily awarded show will wrap after an upcoming final nine-episode run, which launches Feb. 14. Co-creators Robert King and Michelle King discussed the chances of a spinoff during a conference call Monday.
The show is known for its large ensemble cast. “When asked about a potential spinoff, the Kings pointed to popular recurring characters played by Carrie Preston and Martha Plimpton, who both won Emmys for their work on the show,” THR notes.
Cinema Blend quotes Robert King saying: “What would be fun is to find a way to spin off a [cast member] that wasn’t at the center, who we wish we had more time with. The show always centered around the Alicia character. What’s appealing would be pursuing a different ensemble.”
THR notes that Michelle King added: “At this point, nothing’s off the table. But there’s nothing formal, and sure, maybe. We’re not saying no to anything at this point.”
