Will Alicia run for State’s Attorney? That’s what fans of “The Good Wife” have ben waiting to find out all summer and the wait is almost over. The Season 6 premiere of the CBS drama airs Sunday, Sep. 21, fresh off star Julianna Margulies’s Emmy win for Outstanding Actress in a Drama. The new season will address the two shocking cliffhangers that have left fans on the edge of their seats since the Season 5 finale in May.
The synopsis for the premieres episode is out and it seems that Alicia has made up her mind about Eli’s offer for her to run for state’s attorney. According to the episode 1 synopsis, Alicia pretty adamantly refuses to get involved in the race, despite Eli’s insistence. Eli posed the question to Alicia at the end of the Season 5 finale, with the credits rolling before we got to see her answer. Eli hatched the plan after Finn, her previous candidate, backed out at the end of last season amid scandal.
Meanwhile, the other big twist from the last season was Diane’s decision to leave Lockhart/Gardner for Florrick/Agos, a decision she made after Louis Canning threatened to dissolve Lockhart/Gardner if he was not made managing partner. The move is a big one, as Diane is bringing some high paying clients with her to Alicia and Cary’s firm. However, just when things are looking up for Florrick/Agos, the synopsis reveals that before Diane’s defection is complete, an internal crisis will threaten to destroy Alicia’s firm. Could this have to do with Cary’s betrayal in the Season 5 finale to prevent a merger between the two firms? Alicia and Cary will certainly be on shaky terms after that move.
“The Good Wife” will return with no shortage of drama, as Alicia grapples with handling trouble at the firm and her offer for state’s attorney. Fans will finally get to see how it will play out when the new season premieres.
