With so much of “The Good Wife” Season 6 following Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) through her campaign for State’s Attorney, you might expect the show to be building to an election-centric season finale. That’s just not the case, though.
Co-creator and executive producer Robert King shed a little light on Alicia’s campaign and how it will play out on the red carpet at “The Good Wife’s” Paley Festival event Saturday (March 7). Speaking to Zap2it during a group interview, King says the election will only drive the story “two-to-three more episodes.”
“It’s not going to end the year. You kind of want to throw audiences — they’ll think it’s the end of the year,” he says. “What we wanted to do is see the aftermath. It always feels like the story is after the story.”
That aftermath will undoubtedly involve saying goodbye to Kalinda (Archie Panjabi), who is leaving the series at the end of Season 6. There’s also a long list of guest stars appearing before the season is out, including Oliver Platt, Ron Rifkin and Michael J. Fox.
“The Good Wife” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
