Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (2009-2016). 7 Seasons. 156 episodes. THE GOOD WIFE is a drama starring Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies (E.R.) as a wife and mother who must assume full responsibility for her family and re-enter the workforce after her husband's very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. Pushing aside the betrayal and crushing public humiliation caused by her husband Peter (Chris Noth), Alicia Florrick (Margulies) starts over by pursuing her original career as a defense attorney. As a junior associate at a prestigious Chicago law firm, she joins her longtime friend, former law school classmate and firm partner Will Gardner (Josh Charles), who is interested to see how Alicia will perform after 13 years out of the courtroom. Alicia is grateful the firm's top litigator, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), offers to mentor her but discovers the offer has conditions and realizes she's going to need to succeed on her own merit.

CBS announced during Super Bowl 50, on February 7, 2016, that the show was ending with its seventh season. The final episode of the series: May 8, 2016.
