“Practicing the law, you don’t go on instinct — you wait, you listen, and watch.”
Christine Baranski returns as Diane Lockhart to offer a valuable lesson to her goddaughter in the first trailer for the Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight.
Rose Leslie plays said goddaughter, Maia, a young lawyer whose reputation has been destroyed by a massive financial scam that also left Diane broke. Both join Lucca Quinn, played by the returning Cush Jumbo, at a top law firm in Chicago as Diane finds a new lawyer to butt heads with.
EW previously revealed the first details on Maia, who will be in a relationship with fellow lawyer Amy (Heléne Yorke). “She graduated from law school a while ago. Now it’s Maia’s turn to graduate from law school,” executive producer Robert King said.
The Good Fight, set one year after the finale of The Good Wife, premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS All Access. Watch the trailer below.
