In short, he’s a handful.” This will be a pivotal character in the sixth season. “Our dream of an actor is always someone who can mix comedy and drama equally, and André Braugher is exactly that,” said Robert and Michelle King, series co-creators, showrunners, and executive producers. “His work on Men of a Certain Age, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and Homicide has been amazing and funny. We’re ecstatic that he finally has time in his schedule to come play.”


The Good Fight began airing in 2017 as a follow-up to The Good Wife, which ran from 2009-2016. The series follows Diane Lockhart jas she joins one of Chicago’s Chicago’s preeminent law firms after both her and young lawyer Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) have both Diane’s savings and their reputations destroyed due to a huge financial scam. In addition to Baranski, Leslie, and the newly arriving Braugher, The Good Fight will also star Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi, Zach Grenier, and Charmaine Bingwa.
