CBS ALL ACCESS ANNOUNCES SEASON FIVE ORDER OF “THE GOOD FIGHT”
New Episodes of “The Good Fight’s” Fourth Season Are Available Weekly on Thursdays Only on CBS All Access
Season Four to Conclude with Episode Seven on Thursday, May 28
CBS All Access today announced the season five order of its hit original series THE GOOD FIGHT. The fourth season of THE GOOD FIGHT is currently underway, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays exclusively on CBS All Access. Due to the ongoing halt in production since early March, season four of THE GOOD FIGHT will conclude with episode seven on Thursday, May 28.
“THE GOOD FIGHT remains one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed original series on CBS All Access, and we’ve seen a tremendous response from fans this season,” said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, CBS All Access. “While we all had hoped to provide audiences with a 10-episode fourth season, we, among many others, have had to adapt due to the pandemic. Although it’s a shortened season, the incredible cast and crew, helmed by the incomparable Robert and Michelle King, have produced a phenomenal seven episodes. We can’t wait for viewers to see the remainder of the season and are excited to bring subscribers even more of the timely, gripping storylines the Kings bring to life next in season five.”
“It’s been weird to not be able to finish the fourth season,” said Robert and Michelle King. “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.”
Season four of THE GOOD FIGHT finds Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partner’s name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart was forced to accept an offer by a huge multi-national law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. Suddenly, all of their decisions can be second-guessed by the giant firm that is literally on top of them. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, we find Diane Lockhart and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence while simultaneously investigating the emergence of a mysterious “Memo 618.”
The season four cast of THE GOOD FIGHT includes Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Nyambi Nyambi, Michael Boatman, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette, Audra McDonald and Delroy Lindo. Hugh Dancy also joined season four in a recurring role.
Robert and Michelle King serve as showrunners and executive producers of 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. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. The series is distributed worldwide by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
CBS All Access’ growing slate of original series currently includes THE GOOD FIGHT, NO ACTIVITY, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, WHY WOMEN KILL, INTERROGATION and TOONING OUT THE NEWS. CBS All Access’ slate of original series will continue to expand with THE STAND, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, THE UNTITLED RICHARD LINKLATER PROJECT and THE HARPER HOUSE, with additional programming to be announced. CBS All Access is also the exclusive domestic home to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS and STAR TREK: PICARD.
