A spinoff of “The Good Wife” is coming to CBS’ online video service.

CBS All Access said Wednesday that Christine Baranski will star in the new series. Its title wasn’t announced.

The drama will pick up one year after the events in the finale of “The Good Wife,” which aired recently on CBS.

The “Good Wife” spinoff will debut in spring 2017. It will be CBS All Access’ second original series after a new version of “Star Trek,” set to start next January.

Baranski, reprising her role as lawyer Diane Lockhart, will be joined by Cush Jumbo. The British actress played Lucca Quinn on “The Good Wife” starting last year.

New characters will be gradually introduced on the spinoff, CBS All Access and producer CBS Television Studios said.
