After seven seasons on the air, The Good Wife will end on May 8. CBS announced the long-rumored news in a commercial that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night. Though the show is no stranger to unceremonious deaths, many fans still weren’t prepared for the news.
Slate television critic Willa Paskin called the series the best drama on television a little more than a year ago, and for many there will be no replacing it. However, there is some good news: The show’s creators, Robert King and Michelle King, have a new show that’s expected to premiere later this year.
