The Good Fight has been given the green light for more legal battles.
CBS All Access announced last week that the show has been renewed for season 5, after a shortened fourth season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s been weird to not be able to finish the fourth season,” showrunners Robert and Michelle King said in a statement to Variety. “It left the story in even more absurd a 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.”

The production team wasn’t able to complete the planned ten episodes of the fourth season after the COVID-19 outbreak began. Instead, the seventh and final episode of season 4 will begin streaming on May 28.
The drama is a spinoff of hit CBS drama The Good Wife and follows Christine Baranski’s character Diane Lockhart after a big financial scam draws her out of her law firm.
The Good Fight also stars Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Nyambi Nyambi, Michael Boatman, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette, Audra McDonald and Delroy Lindo. Hugh Dancy joined the series in a recurring role for the fourth season.
Robert and Michelle King executive produce the series, which they co-created with Phil Alden Robinson. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Brooke Kennedy, Liz Glotzer, William Finkelstein and Jonathan Tolins also serve as executive producers.
