Following the news that The Good Wife actress Sarah Steele will be reprising her role as Marissa Gold on CBS All Access’s upcoming spinoff joining the previously confirmed Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo as Diane Lockhart and Luca Quinn, respectively plot details of the spinoff have now been revealed. As first reported by Deadline, the series will pick up one year after The Good Wife’s final episode and center around “an enormous financial scam that has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings.” Forced out of their firm, Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn “at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.” Gold will also begin as Diane’s secretary, where she discovers a knack for investigating. All three women will be regulars when the series premieres in February — and surely kick major ass.
