The spin-off drama will continue in 2018.
March 15, 2017
CBS announced today that The Good Fight will be returning to its 'All Access' streaming service for a second season. The legal drama, which is a spin-off of The Good Wife, is five weeks into its run on the online subscription platform, which is releasing new episodes every Sunday.
While the show's performance data has not been made available, it has been receiving high praise from both audiences and critics. With the network looking to add high-quality content to its 'All Access' lineup, bringing The Good Fight back makes a lot of sense.
Created by The Good Wife's Robert and Michelle King, The Good Fight takes place one year after the events of the original series. The story follows the about-to-retire Diane Lockhart, who is forced back to work after losing her savings in a wide-reaching financial scam. No longer welcome at Lockhart & Lee, she joins a preeminent Chicago law firm along with Lucca Quinn and her goddaughter Maia, who just recently passed the bar.
Look for Season 2 of The Good Fight in early 2018.

I watched the "sneak peak" that aired on TV on CBS .. I did enjoy it but wished I would not have wasted my time due to I already pay enough bills not going to pay something else for a show . PUT IT ON REG TV

Gonna have to take a pass on this, no matter how good it is. It just isn't worth paying ANOTHER monthly fee. I will also be passing on the new Star Trek series. Sorry, CBS, I already have a cable bill and pay for Netflix. There's more than enough good content available to me without paying another fee, and frankly, there's a ton more stuff of interest to me on Netflix than you will ever have behind a CBS-centric paywall.

I was disgusted the way the Good Wife ended. I will not watch any show related to it.

I'm with Bob.
If the network did it with The Good Wife, WHY won't they do it with this?
I'm not watching it unless they do.

CBS has this all backwards. Put your losers -- Doubt, Training Day on all Access. Put great stuff -- The Good Fight on the network.

this show is much more better than the original, which is quite a suprise

Already paying for CBS on my Cablevision bill. This started out as the all access pass to see what was going on in the Big Brother house on your computer 24/7. Then the greedy people at CBS (I'm lookin' at u Les Moonves) decided first to have an online only season of Big Brother that you had to buy this pass for to watch online...then they took the spin off of a long running, well liked show, and they're trying to make more money off of this pass. I hope that it doesn't succeed, this just isn't right. Either make CBS a pay channel like Amazon and Netflicks, or just stop gouging people who pay to get CBS on their cable service!

Suzanne, just wait and buy the shows you like on DVD later. I don't get netfix so I waited and got 2 seasons of fargo, The Americans, and Orange is the new black! got them in Walmart for 9.97 a season does that work out cheaper than paying for another channel to only watch one or two shows on it? I'm not sure but its another way to go!

I just can't afford another pay service. With all the controversy over CBS All Access and the fact that they aren't releases audience numbers, can we be sure how well the show is really doing? I can't help but wonder how many viewers they consider successful. I did love the characters and wish I could follow them. For the actor's sake, I do hope it does well. For the slippery slope possibly started by a network succeeding in an individual pay channel, I'm not so sure.

The Good Fight has smart writing. Maybe too smart for some people. And.....those that don't want to watch it don't have to pay for it.
