The in-the-works Good Wife spinoff — starring Christine Baranski (Diane) and Cush Jumbo (Lucca) — will launch earlier than expected — this February — on CBS, before moving exclusively to CBS All Access.
CBS All Access said Wednesday that Christine Baranski will star in the new series. Its title wasn’t announced. The drama will pick up one year after the events in the finale of The Good Wife, which aired recently on CBS.
Sources say CBS is in final negotiations to set up a spinoff of The Good Wife focusing on Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart character that would air on CBS All Access. Actress Cush Jumbo, who joined the Good Wife cast in the show’s seventh and final season, is also expected to star in the spinoff. Sources cautioned that the deal is still in negotiations for a straight-to-series order and may not come to fruition.
