SHARE ‘The Good Wife’ in its final season, CBS announces

The adventures of Chicago lawyer Alicia Florrick are coming to an end.CBS on Sunday used a Super Bowl ad to announce that this season of the long-running hit “The Good Wife” will be its last. Nine episodes remain, and the finale will air May 8.In a joint statement, CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller and CBS Television Studios president David Stapf said it “feels very right to end with the seven-year story its creators envisioned, and to celebrate the show’s final run while at the top of its creative game.”

Speculation about the show’s future has been intense since its creators, Michelle and Robert King, said they planned to leave the show after this season. Star Julianna Margulies fueled the flames at a tribute to the Kings by the Casting Society of America, telling the crowd, “I’m unemployed come April, and I think you haven’t seen me in a while, at least not in person.”

Set but not shot in Chicago, the Emmy-nominated “The Good Wife” began as a drama about a former lawyer (Margulies) who returns to the courtroom after her politician husband (Chris Noth) goes to prison in a scandal. Over seven seasons, she has launched her own firm and won and then resigned the Cook County State’s Attorney’s job.
