About The Good Fight
The Good Fight is set a year after the end of The Good Wife and follows one of the main protagonists of the original series, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski). Lockhart is launching her retirement from the multi-partnered firm she helped build up in The Good Wife, Lockhart, Lee (plus many ever-changing names) & Associates. However, when a financial scam drains her savings—and ruins the reputation of her mentee and goddaughter Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie, Game of Thrones)—the two women are forced out of the prestigious legal firm. That’s the set up that leads them into the waiting offices of Reddick, Boseman, & Kolstad, a prestigious African American–owned firm. Known for taking on Illinois police brutality cases, Reddick, Boseman, & Kolstad frequently were the opposing counsel to Lockhart’s previous cases.
The female-led legal drama centers on Diane, Maia, and Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo), who previously worked at Lockhart’s firm in The Good Wife. Lucca is now an associate and rising star at the pre-eminent Reddick & Boseman that takes in the floundering Diane and Maia, giving them a solid footing on which to rebuild their careers.
In comparison to its predecessor, The Good Fight considers the external societal perspective than the personal moral quandaries that were often the center of The Good Wife. The social commentary aims at the current real-world political climate and issues. Diane Lockhart continues her strong Democratic stand in the face of the alt-right, and topical issues include cyber harassment, fake news, the Me Too movement, and police brutality. Despite the high social awareness, however, the show doesn’t lose its roots in compelling dramatic TV, ratcheting the sensational drama sometimes just beyond the believability while keeping audiences engaged. At the start of its fifth season, The Good Fight still held a 96% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
In addition to Baranski and Jumbo, The Good Fight features many other familiar faces from the original series, including lawyer Julius Cain (Michael Boatman), Colin Morrello (Justin Bartha) a member of the state’s attorney’s office, investigator Marissa Gold (Sarah Steele), and U.S. attorney Liz Lawrence (Audra McDonald). It also co-stars Delroy Lindo, Nyambi Nyambi, and Erica Tazel. Like its predecessor, the series features an extensive cast of stellar guest stars and recurring roles, such as Bernadette Peters, Denis O’Hare, Bebe Neuwirth, Carrie Preston, and Alan Alda.
