Sarah Steele will join the CBS All Access spinoff that bows in February
A little bit of Eli Gold will exist in the much-anticipated spinoff of The Good Wife.
EW has confirmed that Sarah Steele, who played Marissa Gold in the CBS drama, will join Christine Baranski (Diane Lockhart) and Cush Jumbo (Lucca Quinn) in the CBS All Access version that’s set to debut in February.
As reported by Deadline, the yet-to-be-named spinoff will follow Diane and a young lawyer, who are forced out of Lockhart & Lee after a financial scam. The duo join Lucca’s firm in Chicago.
Steele will play Baranski’s secretary.
CBS recently announced that Robert and Michelle King, who created the legal drama for CBS, will executive produce and write the online sequel. The new version of Good Wife will premiere via a special broadcast on CBS, and then move exclusively to CBS All Access.
