Michael J. Fox will reprise his “Good Wife” role for the upcoming fourth season of its CBS All Access spinoff series, “The Good Fight,” executive producer Robert King announced during the Television Critics Association press tour Sunday.
Fox played attorney Louis Canning in 26 episodes of the Julianna Margulies-led “The Good Wife,” which ran for seven seasons on CBS, from 2009-2016. This will mark his first appearance on the show’s sequel series, which launched on CBS’ SVOD service in February 2017.
King — who created both “The Good Wife” and “The Good Fight” with his wife and producing partner Michelle King — also announced that Hugh Dancy will be joining the cast for Season 4 as “one of the lawyers at the firm” Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart. Zach Grenier, who played lawyer David Lee on “The Good Wife,” has also been added to the show as a “regular.”
The executive producer also mentioned the previously announced casting of John Laraquette as the character Gavin Firth for the fourth season.
Here’s the official description for Season 4, which does not yet have a premiere date:
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 (Christine Baranski) and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence.
Along with Baranski, “The Good Fight” stars Cush Jumbo, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.
