CBS confirmed this week that this season of "The Good Wife" would be the show's last, but for fans not ready to say goodbye, there may be some good news: A spinoff could be in the works.
There's nothing official happening just yet, cautioned creators Robert and Michelle King, though when speaking with reporters on Monday, the producers said that they'd definitely be open to the idea of creating a new show centered around peripheral players from the existing "Good Wife" universe.
"At this point, nothing's off the table," Michelle King said when asked about a potential spinoff. "Sure, maybe, we're not saying no to anything."
"What would be fun is to find a way to spin off a [cast member] that wasn't at the center, who we wish we had more time with," added Robert King. "The show always centered around the Alicia character. What's appealing would be pursuing a different ensemble. »

CBS used last night’s Super Bowl to get down to business.
Where most TV networks hosting the game tend to focus heavily on the promotion of individual shows and goose interest in big-bet programs that are slated for release in coming weeks, CBS used its broadcast of Super Bowl 50 to expand viewers’ notions of what a TV network does and also drop a little surprise.
The network had approximately five minutes of time to promote its own stuff, noted George Schweitzer, president of marketing at CBS, in an interview. A decent chunk of that allotment — three different promotions — was used to push the notion to viewers of watching the company’s TV programs in new ways. CBS ran a sultry promo for its “All Access” subscription-on-demand service; an ad for Showtime’s streaming service (with music by Sia); and an overall “brand” spot telling the audience that CBS is available “now, »

The Good Wife says goodbye this May, but not without welcoming some familiar faces back to the series. In addition to the previously announced returns of Margo Martindale and Carrie Preston, The Good Wife well feature the return of Gary Cole…and maybe more. "Yes, a lot," Robert King said when asked about the potential for returning cast members during a conference call about the end of The Good Wife. "Can I just say we're in the works right now trying to get a few and we will know, I would say within the next week. What we wanted to do is see even some people you probably haven't even seen for two years, like Robyn [Jess Weixler] and so on. See where they have kind of ended up and »
After a few months of hemming and hawing, CBS announced in a Super Bowl ad Sunday night that The Good Wife will conclude this season. The network was considering keeping it on the air without its creators, Robert King and Michelle King, who announced they would be leaving the show this year. But now CBS has come to terms with life sans Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), and the creators are very pleased. “It’s really lovely that CBS will allow it to end,” Robert King said during a press call on Monday morning. The producers only learned last week that CBS was considering making the announcement as a Super Bowl promo. “We knew we could control our fate, but we were very aware that we did not control the fate of the series,” Michelle King said. “That was for the studio and network to decide. So we felt very fortunate »

One of the biggest surprise plays in Sunday’s Super Bowl was CBS’s announcement was that this would be the final season of “The Good Wife.”
In a conference call Monday with reporters, showrunners Michelle and Robert King said it was always their plan to end the show after seven seasons.
“The story of Alicia Florrick could only support seven seasons,” said Robert King. They had previously announced that they would exit the show after this season, and it was only a question of whether CBS would attempt to continue the show without them. As recently as the Television Critics Assn. press tour last month, entertainment president Glenn Geller has hinted at the possibility of another season without them at the helm.
But on Monday’s conference call, the Kings revealed that they learned in the last week of CBS’s plan to announce the final season at the Super Bowl. »

Ghosts from The Good Wife‘s prior seasons will make their presence felt during the CBS drama’s final nine episodes — but not the two characters whose absences loom largest.
“No, that’s not our expectation,” said series co-creator Michelle King when asked if there’s any chance Archie Panjabi’s Kalinda — last seen at the end of Season 6 — could return. “Kalinda went off deliberately to disappear — and we’re honoring that choice. It wouldn’t make sense for [Kalinda] to come back.”

CBS has formally called time on acclaimed legal drama The Good Wife, with the series now set to end in May with a seventh and final season.
News first broke during the Super Bowl, when the network aired a promo championing The Good Wife‘s return later this year with “the final nine episodes” in Alicia Florrick’s saga. Indeed, the announcement should come as no surprise for those who have kept up with CBS’ series, particularly after Showrunners Robert and Michelle King confirmed plans to move on from the show once season 7 was a wrap.
And though reports claimed that CBS was open to continuing the Tgw beyond 2016, Network President Glenn Geller released the following statement in tandem with the cancellation.
“It’s never easy to say goodbye to one of the crown jewels of your network and studio, much less to a show that is among the best on television, »
