Oh, I love her... they're making it really tough to refuse... but I think I've seen that Season 1 is just, like, ten episodes... I won't subscribe month-to-month, but might do a 'get-in-and-binge' when it's over...

New casting >> Delroy Lindo will play Robert Boseman, an attorney who starts poaching Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) associates and clients when she gets into financial trouble, and threatens her ability to stay in business.

“Boseman is a character who dominates every scene, intimidates every lawyer, and is beloved by every client. He needs to look like a Chicago lawyer, but have a Shakespearian facility with language, and Delroy Lindo was really the only actor who came to mind,” said executive producers Robert and Michelle King. “Obviously, we always loved his work in ‘Get Shorty’ and ‘Clockers,’ but it really was his work in ‘Heist’ that jumps off the screen. It’s an incredible character he created and we are thrilled that Delroy agreed to come on board. Just thinking of his scenes with Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo makes us smile.”

The Good Wife alums Zach Grenier and Jerry Adler will reprise their respective roles as elder legal statesman David Lee and Howard Lyman as guest stars in the premiere of the upcoming spinoff. As of now, there are no plans for them to do additional episodes beyond the premiere.

The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.

Grenier and Adler join stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters and Erica Tazel.

The series will premiere in February with a special broadcast on the CBS Television Network, then move exclusively to CBS All Access, CBS’ VOD and live streaming service. Executive Producer Brooke Kennedy is directing the premiere episode.
