Carrie Preston brings her offbeat lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni from Chicago to New York City in the new CBS series, “Elsbeth,” which premiered Thursday, Feb. 29, at 10 p.m. EST. The actress originated the character on “The Good Wife” and continued to play her on the first spin-off, “The Good Fight.”

Now Elsbeth, who’s always had an eye for details, ends up shadowing the NYPD on their investigations as an “outside observer.” Although, as her new boss points out, more often, the police are following her.

Here’s a complete “Elsbeth” cast and character guide for the quirky drama.

Upcoming guests stars include Keegan-Michael Key and Gina Gershon.

“Elsbeth” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on CBS, with new episodes streaming a day later on Paramount+.
