CBS has confirmed that it’s planning a spinoff of “The Good Wife” to debut on its streaming service, CBS All Access.

Les Moonves, president and CEO of CBS Corp., confirmed the rumors Wednesday at CBS’ upfront presentation in New York. The show will star Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, reprising their roles as lawyers Diane Lockhart and Lucca Quinn. “Good Wife” creators Michelle and Robert King are behind the show.

There’s no word yet on when the show will debut or its full title. It joins a new version of “Star Trek,” which begins streaming next year, as the first original shows on CBS All Access.
