Season 4 of the hit legal drama series ended with Alicia saying "I'm in" to her colleague, Cary. So now that means that she and Cary will be starting their own law firm and of course it means being the direct competition of Lockhart/Gardner.
This will make for great TV and with the right writing and excellent acting, we have little doubt that it will be awesome TV.
CBS have released a snippet of the first episode of season 5, How to Begin
"“How to Begin...” – Alicia must focus on the firm’s efforts to prevent the execution of a convicted murderer while she secretly plans her exit from the firm with Cary. Meanwhile, Eli helps Peter assemble his staff in the governor’s office, on the fifth season premiere of The Good Wife."We love it when battle lines are drawn! It makes for great TV and we sure hope that M-Net will get the show for the South African viewers ASAP.
