CBS All Access has released the trailer to the second season of their first original drama series The Good Fight, which will have 13 episodes and air weekly on Sundays beginning March 4 exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers.
Coming back for Season 2 are Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Lindo, Sarah Steele, and Justin Bartha.
Season 2 picks up with the world going insane, and the Chicago murder rate 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.
This past summer it was announced that Audra McDonald would join the cast as a new series regular. She will reprise her Good Wife role as United States attorney Liz Lawrence. Liz will also be revealed as the ex-wife of The Good Fight‘s Adrian Boseman, played by Delroy Lindo. Boseman is one of the partners at Reddick, Boseman, & Kolstad, which is a prestigious African American-owned firm. Over the course of the season, the two will have to deal with many of their unresolved issues.
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.
Michael Boatman, who plays Reddick, Boseman & Kolstad managing partner and Trump supporter Julius Cain, and Nyambi Nyambi, who portrays the firm’s in-house investigator Jay Dipersia were also promoted to series regular.
The series, from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, is coming off three recent Critics’ Choice Awards nominations — Best Actress in a Drama Series for Christine Baranski, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Delroy Lindo and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Cush Jumbo.
