In addition to the delay of “Star Trek: Discovery,” CBS All Access has announced the premiere dates for the spinoff to “The Good Wife” and a new, digital edition of “Big Brother.”
Set to premiere in February 2017, “The Good Wife” spinoff will take place one year after the events of “The Good Wife” finale, and will bring back Emmy winner Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart and Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn. New characters will join them as the series progresses.
“The Good Wife” creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King will return as showrunners and EPs on the new series as well, with Phil Alden Robinson co-writing and executive producing the pilot episode.
On Sept. 28, the streaming service will also be launching a brand new “Big Brother: Over the Top.” No official details regarding the series were revealed though. CBS Interactive president and COO Marc DeBevoise, spoke on the new announcements with the following:
“We have an amazing inaugural slate of originals for CBS All Access and world-class creative teams behind each of our shows.
