CBS confirmed that “The Good Wife” will end with Season 7 in a new ad for the show that debuted during Super Bowl 50.

Series creators Robert and Michelle King previously announced that they would depart the long-running legal drama starring Julianna Marguiles after the current season.

Nine more episodes of the series will air on CBS with the finale set for Sunday, May 8.

“‘The Good Wife’ has been the creative experience of a lifetime,” the Kings said in a statement. “Collaborating with the finest actors, writers, producers, staff and crew on ‘The Education of Alicia Florrick’ has been a dream.”

“Being a part of ‘The Good Wife’ has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,” said Margulies. “As an actress and a producer, it has been an absolute honor to be a part of a series that, throughout seven years, never settled on being just good… but always strived to be extraordinary. I have witnessed magic happen when Robert and Michelle King put pen to paper, and it has been a privilege to be in the company of their brilliance.”

The series finale of “The Good Wife” will air Sunday, May 8 at 9/8c on CBS.
