Catch Up On All Episodes on Hulu Plus Before Season Five Premieres on CBS Sunday, Sept. 29

WHAT: All four seasons of "The Good Wife" launch on the Hulu Plus subscription service on Sunday, Sept. 1.

Viewers can never get enough of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies, "ER") who ignites the screen as the political wife whose world is shattered when her husband (Chris Noth, "Sex and the City") is caught in a sex and corruption scandal. Forced to support her family, Alicia returns to work at a Chicago law firm headed by Diane Lockhart (Emmy and Tony Award winner Christine Baranski) and Will Gardner (Josh Charles), a driven attorney with a passion for justice. A gripping blend of courtroom drama, politics and steamy personal relationships, "The Good Wife" also stars Archie Panjabi, Alan Cumming, Matt Czuchry, Makenzie Vegas and Graham Phillips and features all-star guest stars like Michael J. Fox, Matthew Perry, Martha Plimpton and Rita Wilson. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune for its “deluxe production values, smart writing, and outstanding array of actors,” the series earned 30 Emmy nominations. 90 episodes of the legal drama will be available on Hulu Plus.

"The Good Wife" joins CBS's rich television library available on Hulu Plus, including "The Amazing Race," "Numb3rs," "CSI: Miami" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," in addition to classics such as "Star Trek," "Twin Peaks," "I Love Lucy" and "The Twilight Zone."

    When will it be on Netflix?!

  • TV Addict

    Probably never. Just like Community, its will probably be available only on Hulu plus.

  • Anthony

    Probably never. Just like Community, its will probably be available only on Hulu plus.

    I wouldn’t say never but it doesn’t seem likely (it doesn’t have an exclusive deal with Hulu). It is also on Amazon (when they sold it to syndication, it made deals with Broadcast Stations, Hallmark Channel, Hulu and Amazon). If they were going to do a deal with Netflix it would have probably happened then, but in theory it could happen if Netflix sees value in it (which I am not sure that it does, since it is available on other platforms).

    One negative of Hulu plus is ads. I don’t mind ads for current seasons of shows but for shows I can watch on netflix or amazon instant, it makes no sense to choose Hulu plus over either of those two. If apple or someone combines netflix with ad free previous seasons of shows with ad supported current season of shows I’d be happy.

  • RJ

    The Good Wife won’t find a new audience on Hulu. The audience for this show is too old.

  • Dan

    It’s the syndication deal that The Good Wife has been waiting for as it enters its fifth and final season

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Community is available here on Netflix in Brazil, all the 3 seasons.How come in America Community isn’t in Netflix?

  • The Original J


    I plan on catching up with it on either Hulu Plus or Amazon Prime (probably Prime, since it doesn’t have commercials). And I’m certainly not old.

  • Ryan

    I’m 20 years old and I love the show. Probably the best show on broadcast TV right now.

  • John A

    Can’t wait for Season 5.

  • CBSviewer

    I’m sure CBS perfectly knows that. Considering Season 5 is likely to be the Show’s last it doesn’t really matter.
