Fans of the “The Good Fight” can stay tuned. CBS All Access, which currently airs new episodes each Thursday, has announced a fifth season.
Given the coronavirus pandemic, season four’s production schedule was prematurely cut short. The usual 10-episodes quickly turned into a seven-episode run, which ends May 28.
“It’s been weird to not be able to finish the fourth season,” said Robert and Michelle King, showrunners and executive producers of the series, co-created with Phil Alden Robinson. “It left the story in an even more absurd place than usual. So we’re thrilled that CBS All Access wants to bring ‘The Good Fight’ back for an additional season, and we know what story we’re planning to tell.”
“It’s like getting the answers to the SAT ahead of time,” they added.
Season four has Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart bought out by a multinational law firm. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and her colleagues struggle with a loss of independence, while the mystery of “Memo 618” remains.
The show also stars Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Nyambi Nyambi, Michael Boatman, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette, Audra McDonald and Delroy Lindo. Hugh Dancy joined season four in a recurring role.
Separately, the streamer has ordered “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” based on Captain Christopher Pike’s tenure as leader of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The show is set in the decade before Captain Kirk took command of the U.S.S. Enterprise.
