The Best One-Season Wonder TV Shows That Never Got Renewed — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best one-and-done show, a.k.a. a One-Season Wonder? (This refers to shows that only got one season and tragically did not get renewed, as opposed to limited series that never intended to continue.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are so many! But for me the best will always be “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a show that I watched at an age before I really understood the whole TV renewal/cancellation process, but even then I knew it was unjustly short. The show was such a great blend of smarts, snark, and genuine emotions, in a way that could actually be painful to watch. »

Exclusive: 'The Good Fight' Bosses Break Down Finale Cliffhanger and Season 2 Plans

16 April 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Sunday’s finale of The Good Fight.

What’s next for The Good Fight?

CBS All Access’ first scripted series wrapped its first season on Sunday with a jam-packed finale that left several looming questions unanswered. After dutifully siding with her troubled family all season long, at the end of the finale, the feds arrived at Maia Rindell’s (Rose Leslie) doorstep to arrest her.

The twist came after her embattled father, Henry Rindell (Paul Guilfoyle), chose not to take a plea deal that would have cleared Maia and put him in jail -- instead, becoming a fugitive on the run. What does this mean for Maia?

The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King jumped on the phone with Et to break down the biggest finale moments and what they’re planning for season two.

‘The Good Fight’ Finale: Robert & Michelle King Talk Law, Disorder and Plans for Season 2 (Spoilers)

16 April 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“There’s a whole lot of people who want to see this country fail, Diane,” Adrian Boseman tells Diane Lockhart in the season finale of “The Good Fight.”

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watch the season finale of “The Good Fight,” titled “Chaos.”

The spinoff of “The Good Wife” concludes its first season with a strong episode, “Chaos,” that does a good job of capturing the unsettled, post-election moment. Protesters are screaming in the streets, hackers are running amok, fake news is pervasive, Internet trolls are malicious and government is overtaxed at best and corrupt at worst.

“It feels like something’s come detached — like a piece of machinery that doesn’t sound right,” Boseman says.

In this environment, it’s a gift to have “Good Fight” to pick up the mantle of its predecessor and offer an entertaining and thought-provoking weekly look at defense lawyers who are basically trying to do the right »

Exclusive: Cush Jumbo Finds Catharsis in 'The Good Fight'

7 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cush Jumbo wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye.

One year ago, the British actress faced an unexpected dilemma: The Good Wife -- in which she played Lucca Quinn, the smart-mouthed, witty lawyer who became Alicia Florrick’s closest confidante in the seventh and final season -- was ending,and Jumbo wasn’t prepared for it.

“I definitely had mixed feelings about it. At that stage, if that was what I’d gotten, that was fine with me because it had been an amazing experience,” Jumbo, 31, told Et of the bittersweet final weeks on The Good Wife, as she packed up her life in New York City for an extended trip back to London on an early morning in March. “It was all a bit of a surprise when it extended into something else.”

That “something else” became The Good Fight, the critically-hailed spinoff that shifted its focus to Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), her goddaughter, Maia Rindell »

The Good Fight, Now Filled With Guest Stars, Suicide Attempts and Internal Strife

2 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

How do you make The Good Fight's least likable character better? Introduce his mother. Now that may sound like an odd way to go about it, but when you cast Andrea Martin as Francesca Lovatelli, the mother to Justin Bartha's Colin Morello, you're doing just that. In "Reddick vs. Boseman" viewers were treated to a new side of Colin when he and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) ran into his mother at an art gallery. Seems Colin hasn't been too forthcoming with his family about Lucca, but once they meet, Colin's family is all in…because they want him to use Lucca as prop to run for office. Does he want to do that? He said no, Lucca cried. To be continued, obviously. There are two more episodes left this »

The Good Fight's Most Annoying Episode Yet?

19 March 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's almost like The Good Fight was created just to provide commentary about the current political climate. In "Social Media and Its Discontents," Diane Lockart (Christine Baranski) and Co. took on the alt-right and internet trolls—yes, again—while Maia (Rose Leslie) debated whether or not her dad (Paul Guilfoyle) was trying to get evidence against her and the firm, and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) dealt with her feelings in the forced love interest plot with Colin (Justin Bartha). It was a more cohesive episode, with Maia weighing in on Chum Hum's moderation practices with her own harassment experience, but boy was it an annoying episode. All the credit goes to John Cameron Mitchell's Felix Staples. »

‘The Good Fight’ Renewed for Season 2 on CBS All Access

15 March 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, and Rose Leslie will all continue fighting “The Good Fight.” CBS All Access has renewed “The Good Wife” spinoff for a second season, Variety has learned. Season 2 will premiere in early 2018.

The Good Fight” is only halfway through its 10-episode first season, but the series is unencumbered by the daily ratings rat race thanks to its home on subscription service CBS All Access, where success is measured by total number of subscribers rather than viewers for individual episodes. For context, though, the series premiere ran on the CBS broadcast channel on Feb. 19, drawing a total audience of 7.17 million dollars for that airing, and CBS says All Access is approaching 1.5 million subscribers.

“We’re only a few episodes into the first season and the reaction from CBS All Access subscribers and critics alike has been phenomenal,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “This series and its characters are just beginning »

Exclusive: 'Good Fight' Star Justin Bartha Teases 'Intense' Romance With Colin and Lucca -- Watch Sneak Peek!

3 March 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Justin Bartha is just getting started on The Good Fight.

The 38-year-old actor made his debut on The Good Wife spinoff in last week’s episode, facing off against Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) in the courtroom as Assistant U.S. Attorney Colin Morrello, a rising star in the Chicago law (and dating) scene. One of the city’s most eligible bachelors, Colin takes an immediate liking to Lucca -- and so begins their rollercoaster romance.

“There will definitely be some ups and downs, but the relationship is played very realistically and you’ll find out a lot about both characters through how they deal with this pretty quick and intense relationship,” Bartha tells Et.

The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 3 Review: The Schtup List

26 February 2017 2:44 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Things between Diane and Lucca are starting to thaw.

Although, I wonder if they'll ever talk about what happened between them. Does Lucca even know Diane and Kurt are separated now?

These are just some of the questions that went through my head during The Good Fight Season 1 Episode 3.

One of the more prominent storylines concerned some unintended consequences of the new administration.

Reddick, Boseman & Kolstad is an all black firm that primarily handles police brutality cases. The partners are concerned this will piss off the government and result in less favorable tax benefits for their clients.

Their concern increases when a longtime client hasn't paid his retainer this year.

The client's mention of a new administration and a subsequent meeting with a firm that openly supported Trump, suggest they need to find a Trump supporter of their own.

The stakes they go to to find one are pretty funny. »

The Good Fight Season 1 Review

19 February 2017 5:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

CBS’s new streaming-only drama might be one of its best since The Good Wife, a fitting point because The Good Fight is the spiritual successor and spinoff to the aforementioned drama about a lawyer who rises through the ashes of her husband’s political sex scandal.

The Good Fight carries on in this same world of deals, betrayals, and heightened court drama with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), who returns from The Good Wife a year after the final episode of the series. Her life is now in more uncertain terms than ever after the turmoil of a Ponzi scheme that took much of Diane’s fortune. Cue the need for a fresh start at a Chicago law firm run by Adrian Boseman (Delroy Linda) and headlined by familiar face, Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo).

But this new series has a new surrogate for »
