CBS announced today that The Good Fight has been renewed for a third season on its 'All Access' streaming service. The Good Wife spin-off, which has four episodes remaining in its sophomore run, has continued to garner rave reviews for its engaging and thought-provoking storylines which often mirror current real-world events and societal issues.

The legal drama made its mark last year as the first original series on CBS' subscription video-on-demand service. And while the show's performance data is not made public, today's pickup is a good sign that subscribers are continuing to tune in.

Created by The Good Wife's Robert and Michelle King, The Good Fight takes place one year after the events of the original series. While most main characters were not carried over, the story continued to follow Diane Lockhart, who has come out of retirement to join a preeminent Chicago law firm along with Lucca Quinn. Other supporting characters from The Good Wife also make occasional appearances.

Look for Season 3 of The Good Fight in early-to-mid 2019.
