First we lost Will. Then we lost Lockhart/Gardner. And now, we just found out that season 6 of The Good Wife will be Kalinda’s last. It’s a shocking loss for longtime fans of the show—yet its impact isn’t as bad as it could have been. Or rather, it isn’t what it would have been just a few seasons ago. READ FULL STORY

Going from the set of The Good Wife to the stage of Broadway’s Cabaret requires a quick change for Alan Cumming, whose hair has to go from silver-streaked to black. As he tells EW Radio while promoting his new memoir Not My Father’s Son, The Good Wife producers opted for a wig for three episodes. But then the show’s hair team found a new system: “Eli’s gray streaks are silver blooming Sharpie,” he says.
Listen to him recount his tale of woe to News & Notes hosts Julia Cunningham and Mario Correa below. READ FULL STORY
In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your fall Sunday-night game plan:
As fans saw in last week’s Good Wife premiere, Alicia is willing to do just about anything to post Cary’s $1.3 million bail and get him out of what has proven to be a very dangerous prison. She was almost successful after one of Lemond Bishop’s associates offered up the necessary funds, but Finn quickly questioned the source of the money.
So now, we’ve got an exclusive first look at Sunday’s episode, in which Alicia needs Peter to sign off on a loan in order to help Cary. Only, if Peter’s learned anything from his past mistakes, it’s that documents don’t go away. Secrets come out. And signing this loan is not a secret he wants on his record.
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
The strong women of The Good Wife are about to come face-to-face with a feminist legend. EW has confirmed that activist Gloria Steinem will guest star on the upcoming sixth season of The Good Wife. Steinem, who’s a fan of the show, will play herself in the season’s third episode. There’s no word yet on which characters she’ll interact with, but one can only hope she’ll offer Alicia a few words of wisdom.
The Good Wife returns Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9:30 p.m. on CBS.
Season 6 of The Good Wife returns Sept. 21 at 9:30 p.m on CBS. (Note the special time, courtesy of football runover.) Season 5 was one of the best—and most dramatic—in the show’s history, and star Julianna Margulies walked away with an Emmy as proof. See where the show left off by watching EW’s 60-second refresher video. READ FULL STORY
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.
Frasier alum David Hyde Pierce has landed a recurring role on The Good Wife.
The Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office.
New this year to the EWwys, EW.com’s annual reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed, are guest actor and guest actress categories. We’ve already posted audio of Elizabeth Banks phoning EW Radio to accept Best Guest Actress in a Comedy for her return to Modern Family (hear it here), but the other winners—The Good Wife‘s Carrie Preston, Orange is the New Black‘s Pablo Schreiber, and Game of Thrones‘ Pedro Pascal—were equally as entertaining when they dialed.
The closest race in the 2014 EWwys was Best Guest Actress in a Drama: Preston topped Lisa Kudrow (Scandal) by just 37 votes. The best part about Preston’s call? She was dressed as Elsbeth Tascioni, taking a break during a wardrobe fitting to reprise her winning role yet again. She also lightheartedly lamented not being able to keep all the True Blood souvenirs she’d wanted. READ FULL STORY
In the absence of Will Gardner, it seems The Good Wife is bringing back a number of fan favorite characters. First, we found out that Carrie Preston’s Elsbeth Tascioni would make her triumphant return, and now we’ve got more good news for Tascioni fans: Josh Perotti is coming back with her.
EW has confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Perotti, the attorney who once caught Ms. Tascioni’s eye (or rather, she caught his). Although it’s unclear how long either of them will be sticking around, their returns will coincide, so here’s to hoping there’s a date involved. In fact, Preston told TVLine, which first reported the news, that “he and I have a little sparing [sic] thing that we do.”
The Good Wife returns for its sixth season on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on CBS.
