'Good Wife' creators tease a secret, guest stars, and more Eli-Alicia

The Good Wife returns Sunday, Sept. 21 (CBS, 9:30 p.m. ET) with a premiere that picks up right where season 5 left off: with Eli (Alan Cumming) suggesting that Alicia (Julianna Margulies) run for State’s Attorney. Creators Robert and Michelle King are mum about whether she’ll ultimately decide to enter the race, but we were able to get a few teases out of them about what’s to come.

EW: First question: Are you currently hiding a secret on the level of Will Gardner getting shot?
ROBERT KING: I wouldn’t say at that level, but there is a secret we’re hiding about the first episode. Sorry. We don’t like doing that. READ FULL STORY

'Good Wife' creators' new show is like 'The West Wing' meets 'The Strain'

Robert and Michelle King are continuing their good relationship with CBS.

The husband and wife team have signed a new three-year deal to continue as executive producers and showrunner on the hit series The Good Wife. In addition, the new agreement has the Kings developing a new comedy-horror series for the studio. CBS has made a put-pilot commitment to Brain Dead, described as an hourlong comedic horror series set in the world of D.C. politics — in other words, “The West Wing meets The Strain.” The series will reunite the entire team of The Good Wife, with the Kings as writers and executive producers and Scott Free producing alongside CBS TV Studios for the CBS network.

Coming off an explosive fifth season and second Emmy win for star Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife will return on CBS on Sunday, September 21.

The fifth season finale of The Good Wife airs Sunday at 9 p.m., and oh, what a season it’s been. From the blowup at Lockhart/Gardner to Will’s murder in the courtroom, the CBS drama has had it all. (Seriously, let’s give this show all the Emmys!) In the season 5 ender, Zach (Graham Phillips) graduates from high school and Alicia (Juliana Margulies) entrusts Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) and Veronica (Stockard Channing) to plan his graduation party. Meanwhile, the future of Florrick/Agos and Lockhart/Gardner hangs in the balance. Here, Juliana Margulies and the show’s co-creators, Robert and Michelle King, tease the episode and look forward to the future of the show: READ FULL STORY

'The Good Wife' preview: Julianna Margulies and the Kings talk season 5 fireworks

Tonight, The Good Wife returns for its fifth season (9 p.m. ET on CBS), and we pick up right where we left off — Alicia (Julianna Margulies) telling Cary (Matt Czuchry) she’ll leave Lockhart/Gardner with him to start their own firm with the other fourth year associates. Margulies was happy it was Cary and not Will (Josh Charles) at Alicia’s door in the final moment of the finale. “I wanted it to be an element of surprise, and that’s what [the show’s creators, Robert and Michelle King] are so good at. I think I actually got more than I bargained for,” Margulies says with a laugh. Here, she and the Kings tease what’s to come.

• Alicia and Cary won’t leave immediately. Because what fun would that be? The Kings interviewed lawyers about starting their own firms and learned the period between deciding to leave and pulling the trigger is ripe with drama. “You’re trying to quietly solicit clients for the new firm as you get your ducks in order and you feel like a betrayer,” Robert says. The reason for the delay: “Alicia starts to realize that the associates she’s leaving with are thinking idealistically and not like mature partners would. She keeps trying to get them out faster and they want to wait for bonuses,” Margulies says. “Alicia knows that that’s just not going to play out well, and sure enough, it ends up blowing up in her face.”

When we spoke with her, she hadn’t yet filmed the scene in which Will finds out she’s leaving. Alicia will keep it a secret from Will and Diane (Christine Baranski) for as long as she can. (“For as long as we can,” Michelle says.) Margulies told us she was bracing herself, and having now seen the promo below, we understand why. Plus, she’d already seen a preview of Will’s wrath: “I saw this scene yesterday,” she said. “Literally, Alicia stands there while Diane and Will go at each other, and it was just devastating to watch.”
