NEW YORK — It’s time for the Season 3 premiere of The Good Wife, which returns on CBS on March 11.
The third season will be the second to last of CBS’ acclaimed drama series, which premiered on June 25, 2018, with its signature “helicopter” finale.
The second season premiered April 6 and was watched by nearly 2 million people.
The show is also the highest rated show in the CBS family.
The new season will feature new characters, a new look for a character, and new storylines for the entire series.
CBS Television Studios President Steve Burke said that the series will have “more of a sense of the world in which it takes place” as it follows “a very different world than the one we’re used to.”
Season 3 will also feature the return of the characters from the first two seasons, with the series focusing on the trial of a former prosecutor in Chicago.
The first season was a “love letter” to the city, with characters such as Detective James “Whitey” Bulger and former prosecutor Mary Sweeney.
The series, the first in a new-look spinoff series from CBS Studios, has already scored a Golden Globe nomination for outstanding drama series.
The series is also receiving rave reviews, with a Metacritic score of 85 out of 100 and a TV.com ranking of 8.5 stars.
Season 3 is also getting a new, highly-anticipated co-showrunner, Paul Scheer, who is based in Chicago and is also executive producing the series.
“It’s exciting to be back with all these new people and different stories, and with all those characters,” Burke said.
“The show is coming together in a very exciting way, and it’s really nice to have a lot of new people.
This is one of those shows that can just keep going and keep evolving, and we’re all very excited about it.”
The new co-star of Season 3 will be former “Big Love” star Olivia Colman, who will play the woman who is accused of killing her former lover, former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.
Colman also starred in a recurring role in the fourth season of CBS drama series How to Get Away With Murder.
Colmen’s co-stars on Season 3 include Carrie Coon, who plays Colman’s daughter, and Michaela Watkins, who portrays Colman and her former fiancé, former city prosecutor and current attorney Joe DePaolo.
