Ahead of its season finale, a drama series that has become one of the signature shows on the CBS All Access subscription service has been renewed. The network announced that it will bring back “The Good Fight” for a third season.
Julie McNamara, executive vice president of original content for CBS All Access, announced the renewal.
“‘The Good Fight’ is a perfect example of what we strive for a CBS All Access original series to be: thought-provoking, boundary-pushing and, most of all, incredibly entertaining,” McNamara said. “We can’t wait to see what Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the incomparable cast will bring to audiences in season three.”
The first season and first nine episodes of season two of “The Good Fight” are currently streaming on CBS All Access. All new episodes of the show’s second season are available on demand weekly on Sundays, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers. The season two finale will be available to stream on Sunday, May 27.
The announcement notes: “In season two of ‘The Good Fight,’ the world is going insane, and the Chicago murder rate is on the rise. Amidst the insanity, Diane, Lucca, Maia and the rest of the law firm find themselves under psychological assault when a client at another firm kills his lawyer for overcharging. After a copycat murder, the firm begins to look at its own clients suspiciously. Meanwhile, Diane battles with a new partner at the firm, Liz Reddick-Lawrence (Audra McDonald); Maia becomes tougher after her parents’ scandal puts her on trial; and Lucca is brought back into Colin’s orbit.”
The series, from “The Good Wife” creators Robert and Michelle King, stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.
