Things are continuing to look up for Diane Lockhart: CBS All Access has renewed The Good Fight for a second season.

CBS’ digital subscription service announced that The Good Wife spinoff has been so great, it wants more episodes for early 2018. The drama picks up a year after The Good Wife ended on CBS and follows Diane (Christine Baranski) as she starts a new chapter of her career by working for an all African-American law firm.

“We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal,” said Marc DeBevoise, president and chief operating officer, CBS Interactive, in a statement. “This series and its characters are just beginning and we can’t wait to see where Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the amazing cast take The Good Fight next.”
