‘The Good Fight’ comes to SBS on Wednesday night

Australian audiences will get to return to the world of law film Lockhart Gardiner when The Good Fight premiers on SBS TV on Wednesday night.

The new TV show, which is a spin-off from the popular long running series The Good Wife, features Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downtown Abbey) as new character who is a lesbian.

The new show picks up the story a year after central character Alicia Florrick walked off into the sunset. Producers have declared that there’s no chance Julia Margulies character will be returning, show runners have said that her story is over.

Instead the new show will focus on Christine Baranski’s character Dianne Lockhart. Who discovers that he retirement will have to be delayed after all her money is lost in a financial con.

Leslie will play Maia, Locklhart’s god-daughter, alongside Helene York (Quantico, High Maintenance), who will play her girlfriend Amy. Amy is already a lawyer, while Maia is just finishing law school.

Returning cast members include Cush Jumbo playing Lucas Quinn,  and Sarah Steele will return as Marissa Gold.

The final season of The Good Wife left many fans disappointed as the show seemed to have run out of steam, but this new chapter looks like it has the furnaces burning.

The show kicks off with a double episode on Wednesday at 8:30pm, and continues at 9:30pm the next week.
