If courtroom dramas are your thing, then “The Good Fight” is a show that you should absolutely be watching. The Good Wife came to an end in 2016, and the series on Paramount+ acts as both a spin-off and a solo sequel to the show.
The events of the closing episode of The Good Wife take place a year before the beginning of this new series, which follows Diane Lockhart as she struggles to find a new job after a major financial scheme brings her goddaughter Maia’s name into disrepute and wipes out Diane’s money. As a result, they find themselves working with Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s most prestigious legal firms.
Spin-offs do not typically have the same level of success as their parent series, but this is not the case with The Good Fight. The audience’s interest has been maintained throughout the tale. In addition, despite the fact that it is a solo story, there have been (and will be) some cameos from the story that came before it.
Here is all that we know about The Good Fight season 6 thus far, even if we don’t have all the answers yet!
