Simultaneously, her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart has her life savings completely wiped.

As Jumbo said, she was a fan of "The Good Wife" even before she joined the cast, and always admired how issues in the show were never simply black and white, but more complex. Rose Leslie's character Maia is a lesbian and towards the end of the panel it was revealed that Justin Bartha will be playing Cush Jumbo's love interest.

Based on the trailer, it seems to hit numerous same beats as The Good Wife, and it's also getting some heavy-hitting cast members, like Delroy Lindo.

Aside from the swearing, how will the versions that air on CBS and All Access differ?

But don't expect Julianna Margulies, who played Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife, to make an appearance.

Since the series will air on the new CBS All Access digital platform, the writers were given a lot more freedom in terms of the dialogue - specifically in regard to cursing.

The premiere will begin with Diane, having just announced her hopes to retire, watching the inauguration of Donald Trump. Michelle and Robert King are the executive producers.

Now the show - its 10-episode run premieres on CBS on February 19 with additional episodes released each Sunday on CBS All Access, the network's subscription streaming service - is eager to portray life for its characters in a Donald Trump political sphere. The show is called The Good Fight. "'The Good Wife' was always a little bit about the Obama years".

"You're going to hear people talk the way they do in real life", Michelle says.

Several characters from "The Good Wife" will appear in the 10-episode spinoff.

"We talked to Julianna about the show and her relationship to it", said Robert King, "and we agreed that The Good Wife ended that story".

Since the premiere is also airing on CBS, however, they did have to film different versions of certain scenes. She said her character similarly will try to pick herself up after unexpected career downturn. Baranski and Jumbo reprise their roles from the original series, along with Sarah Steele, who is seen in character as Marissa Gold in the trailer.
