The Good Wife Spin-Off Now Has a Title So We Can Stop Calling It The Good Wife Spin-Off

The series is finally in production and will premiere in early 2017.

CBS' upcoming spin-off of The Good Wife, which debuts on CBS All Access in February 2017, finally has a title. The good news is that it's pretty close to the name of the original series, which should make it easier to remember. That's right, get ready for The Good Fight, everybody.

The drama, which hails from Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, picks up one year after the events of The Good Wife's series finale. The show will follow Christine Baranski's Diane Lockhart after she's been forced out at Lockhart & Lee following a financial scam that wiped out her savings. Along with a young lawyer named Maia, Diane then joins Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago's other fancy law firms.
The new series will debut with a special broadcast on CBS before moving exclusively to CBS All Access, the network's subscription streaming service. The Good Fight also stars Bernadette Peters, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle and Erica Tazel.
