Marissa will finally be able to count on her father!

After a weaker season 5, which saw the departure of two other stars essential to the series, namely Cush Jumbo and Delroy Lindo, The Good Fight will try to restart the machine with its season 6. And for that, the series announces the arrival in the casting ofAlan Cumming !

Requested by fans of The Good Wife since the beginning of the spin-off, he will obviously resume his role – very popular – of Eli Gold, for two episodes of The Good Fight (minimum). Inevitably, this will have to do with his daughter Marissa. Eli will come back to give her a hand as she gropes her way through her new career as a lawyer.

A little surprise, since Alan Cumming had always hinted that he would not return in the new series. In Première, three years ago, he confided: “It’s complicated… But I don’t think I’ll be back in The Good Fight. That’s a shame. I would have liked to, but it seems that it’s not going to do it“. And to clarify that this was “bound to a question of money. Of salary. As for Julianna Marguliesthere is disagreement over the cachet.”

Obviously, they ended up getting along. This comeback of one of the big names in The Goof Wife is accompanied by the arrival in the casting of Andre Braugher. The adored former commissioner of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be the new star of season 6, playing the showman and very influential lawyer Ri’Chard Lane, who is imposed on Liz (Audra McDonald) as the new “partner” of the firm.

Season 6 of The Good Fight will be on view by the end of the year on the Paramount + platform and in France on Amazon Prime Video.
