The producers behind the much-anticipated spinoff of The Good Wife are ready to reveal a juicy detail about Maia, the character played by Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie: She will be a lesbian.

EW has obtained an exclusive first look of Maia and her girlfriend Amy (Helene Yorke) from The Good Fight, which will make its debut on CBS All-Access on Feb. 19. Maia is the goddaughter of Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), who will appear in the spinoff.

“That’s Maia’s longtime girlfriend, who is a lawyer herself,” executive producer Robert King tells EW exclusively. “She graduated from law school a while ago. Now it’s Maia’s turn to graduate from law school.”

Production on the spinoff began in October in New York. The drama will also star former Good Wife actors Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn and Sarah Steele as Eli’s daughter Marissa. The Good Fight will pick up one year after the events of the final broadcast of the CBS show, which aired May 8.

The series will also star Justin Bartha and Delroy Lindo.
