‘The Good Fight’ Renewed For Season 6 By Paramount+
Paramount+ will continue ‘The Good Fight‘ as the US streaming service orders a 6th Season of the drama after only being 4 episodes into airing Season 5!
“The Good Fight‘s provocative, whip-smart, and the no-holds-barred world remains as relevant as ever, continuing to entice new audiences as one of Paramount+’s top-performing original series and acquisition drivers,” commented Paramount+ scripted series chief Nicole Clemens. “We are thrilled to continue The Good Fight‘s enduring legacy with a sixth season and can’t wait to see what the brilliant minds behind the series, Robert and Michelle King, tackle next.”
In the fifth season, Diane (Christine Baranski) is forced to question whether it’s appropriate for her to help run an African American law firm with Liz (Audra McDonald) when the firm loses two top lawyers. Meanwhile, Marissa (Sarah Steele) and the firm become entangled with Hal Wackner (Mandy Patinkin), a regular Chicagoan who decides to open his own courtroom in the back of a copy shop.
CBS Studios, who make the drama, signed a five-year overall deal with creators Robert and Michelle King back earlier this month, which rather pointed to the likelihood of ‘The Good Fight’ getting picked up for a new season. Paramount+ had already renewed the King’s other show, ‘Evil’, for a third season earlier this month.
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.
‘The Good Fight‘ Season 5 is currently airing on Paramount+ in the USA. The series airs on More4 in the UK, but we don’t yet have a UK air date for the new season. If you want to keep track of this or any other shows, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when they get a UK premiere date.
