Season 6 of the courtroom drama The Good Fight, which began as a spinoff of the critically acclaimed show The Good Wife, will be its last.

How About the Actors of The Good Fight Season 6?
There were a lot of recognizable faces in the teaser, but Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart is the main attraction. Baranski’s portrayal of Diane, who she also played throughout The Good Wife, reached new heights of popularity when she was given the lead part in The Good Fight. Among the many films in which she has appeared are the Mamma Mia films, The Gilded Age, Into the Woods, and Chicago.
Returning for the series’ last season are Audra McDonald (The Gilded Age, Private Practice), Sarah Steele (The Good Wife), Nyambi Nyambi (Mike & Molly), Michael Boatman (The Good Wife), and Charmaine Bingwa (Black Box) as Liz Reddick, Marissa Gold, Jay Dipersia, and Julius Cain, respectively.
Andre Braugher (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) joins the ensemble this season as Ri’Chard Lane, the showman lawyer assigned to Liz as her new partner, and John Slattery (Mad Men) joins as Lyle Bettencourt, the doctor who treats Diane. Guest stars Alan Cumming and Carrie Preston are noted, and the teaser also included Gary Cole.
Review of Season 5 of “The Good Fight”
Season 5 of The Good Fight focused heavily on Hal Wackner’s (Mandy Patinkin) decision to set up his own court in a hidden copy room and administer his own brand of justice. What at first looks like a ridiculous concept catches hold and contributes to the growth of violence that bears striking similarities to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. The latter had been a source of trouble all season: Diane’s husband Kurt (Gary Cole) had been under FBI scrutiny all along due to his ties to insurgents.
After being appointed to manage Reddick Lockhard in the wake of Adrian Boseman’s (Delroy Lindo) departure, Diane decides to stand down and become an equity partner due to the difficulties inherent in her position as a white woman in a predominately black firm.
