The Good Fight will return for a second season on CBS All Access beginning Sunday, March 4, 2018. The series’ second season will consist of 13 new episodes and will be available exclusively on CBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service.

The Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight, is CBS All Access’ first original dramatic series. Season one premiered on February 19, 2017 and earned three Critics’ Choice Awards nominations in the Best Actress in a Drama Series (Christine Baranski), Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Delroy Lindo), and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Cush Jumbo) categories.

The Good Wife creators Robert King and Michelle King are also behind the spinoff which stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Michael Boatman and Nyambi Nyambi. Robert and Michelle King serve as the series’ showrunners and executive produce The Good Fight with Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Liz Glotzer and Brooke Kennedy.

The Season 2 Plot: 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.

A Look Back at the Season 1 Plot: The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of the final episode of The Good Wife. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s preeminent law firms.
