After six seasons of gripping drama, The Good Wife returns Sunday for more. Creators Robert and Michelle King sat down with EW editor Henry Goldblatt and EW Live host Jessica Shaw ahead of the premiere to talk about what’s in store for season 7.

One of the themes the show will be focusing on is how Alicia (Julianna Margulies) can rebuild, especially now that her second child is leaving for college. “A lot of it is [about] how do you then remake this kind of family-like relationship that is a combination of work and home?” Robert said.

Another topic will be Alicia’s wine addiction, which has expanded beyond wine to “little margaritas.” However, Michelle assures us it’s not the prelude to a 12-step program.

Listen below to hear more about how Alicia will cope in the upcoming season (and what the odds are for a Good Wife/Scandal crossover).
