What The Critics Say (Metascore 78)

  • Written and executive produced by “Good Wife” creators Michelle King and Robert King, The Good Fight marks a pretty seamless transition from “The Good Wife” that feels similar enough for viewer comfort, but also different enough to avoid being a total rehash. — Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • Once again, personal stories weave around and reflect upon weekly cases; and once again, the Kings use those cases to skillfully tackle social issues, with an added emphasis here on ageism, racism and privilege. And as always, they tell their cleverly structured stories with wit, lace them with ambiguity, and sprinkle them with twists that are all the more enjoyable for being believable. — Robert Bianco, USA Today
  • Creatively, it’s a satisfying return to the world, freed of the Florrick baggage that made the final Good Wife days less exciting, even if her absence seems to limit the new show’s overall ceiling. — Alan Sepinwall, UPROXX
