‘Good Wife’ Creators Tease Possible Spinoff

“Nothing is off the table,” Michelle King says

Fans of “The Good Wife” may be in luck.

Series co-creators Michelle and Robert King have said that they are open to the possibility of a spinoff once the CBS series ends its run this season.

“Nothing is off the table,” Michelle King said during a conference call on Monday. “Nothing is formal but we are not saying no to anything.” Robert King added, “What would be appealing is if we could find a way to spinoff an ensemble. We wished we had more time to explore other lives.”

But chances are Archie Panjabi will not return to reprise her role as Kalinda. “That’s because she’s moved onto another series, which we can’t wait to see,” Robert King said. That series is “The Jury” on ABC, but may also be due to the longstanding rumors of a feud between Panjabi and series star Julianna Margulies.

The Kings also said that the decision to end the show was made just last week, after CBS Entertainment head Glenn Geller announced that the pair would depart the show during the TCA Winter press tour in Jan.

“There was a conversation with the network, studio and Julianna,” Michelle said. “Everybody came to the same decision, that to be able to go out together, is really what we all wanted. We felt very fortunate and flattered that we were being allowed to end the show together with the writers and producers in the way we would hope it would end.”

CBS last year ordered a summer-event series from the Kings, “BrainDead,” set to premiere in summer 2016. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Tveit were tapped to star in the show, described as a comic thriller set in the world of Washington D.C. politics in which aliens have consumed the brains of several Congressmen.
