Is ‘The Good Wife’ getting cancelled?! Star Julianna Margulies hinted that the show might be ending when she said she’s ‘unemployed come April.’ Is the award-winning show not getting an eighth season?
Is the Good Wife ready to move on from The Good Wife? Julianna Margulies, 49, the woman we all know as Alicia Florrick, claimed during a speech at the Casting Society of America’s third annual Artios Awards that she’s “unemployed come April.” Say what?
“I surprised Robert and Michelle tonight,” Julianna said during her speech, according to Vulture. “They didn’t know I was going to be here. They think I’m here for them, but I’m unemployed come April, and I think you haven’t seen me in a while, at least not in person, so I thought I should show up.”
Julianna could definitely be joking. After all, she was making a speech honoring the The Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King. And what’s a speech without a joke here or there?
The Kings recently announced that they would not be returning as showrunners if The Good Wife returned for an eighth season. “The bottom line is CBS is trying to make deals for an eighth season, so we would be there in a supervisory role, but the storytelling we have will finish in the seventh year,” Robert told our sister site TVLine. “That doesn’t mean we’re putting Alicia in her grave, because you couldn’t do an eighth season after that. But to our minds, we have always written with the idea we could end this season a certain way so that it would make it a satisfactory [conclusion to the] series.”
CBS president Glenn Geller said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that no decision has been made regarding The Good Wife. “It’s just January, so we have to determine if there will be another season or not,” he said.
