Whoa. ‘The Good Wife’ just made the biggest announcement ever during Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 — that season 7 will be the final season of the show!
Get ready to say goodbye to Alicia Florrick. The Good Wife made the shocking announcement during Super Bowl 50 that season seven would be its last. The promo teased the final nine episodes of our beloved show. The Good Wife series finale will air May 8, 2016.
This is so crazy! The show teased its “biggest surprise” yet at the start of the promo. Fans couldn’t have predicted what came next. The Good Wife revealed that the current season would be its last.
The final nine episodes will start airing Feb. 14. The series finale will air May 8. Of course, this doesn’t come as too much of a surprise to us as Julianna Margulies, 49, recently made a joke that made us all skeptical.
“I surprised Robert and Michelle tonight,” Julianna said during her speech at the Casting Society of America’s third annual Artios Awards last month, 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.”
Showrunners Robert and Michelle King also previously announced that this was their last 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.”
