The Good Wife just very quietly dodged a big bullet.

CBS has successfully concluded contract negotiations with Josh Charles, whose unique four-year deal was set to expire in May, TVLine has learned exclusively.

According to sources, the Emmy-nominated actor agreed to extend his pact by a year, thereby ensuring that Will Gardner will be around at least through Season 5. (Although The Good Wife has yet to be renewed by CBS, a fifth season is a foregone conclusion, per TVLine’s trusty Renewal Scorecard.)
