With Emmys voting season kicking off, CBS is looking to spread the good word about The Good Fight. As such, the show's season 4 premiere will be made available for free to watch online on YouTube through July 15. That's also good news for those not voting during the awards process.

Christina Baranski and Game of Thrones vet Rose Leslie star in The Good Fight, which premiered its fourth season with the episode “The Gang Deals with Alternate Reality." It presented an alternate reality in which Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election. The season still went on to tackle relevant issues, including racial injustice, the #MeToo movement, white privilege, and Jeffrey Epstein.
