The fourth season of the thriller was launched on 9th April 2020. Its 7 episodes streamed successfully and got expected positive reviews from viewers. It’s been more than 8 months since season 4 ended and now fans are excited to know about The Good Fight Season 5 release date. If you are also a true fan of this series then take a look at what we have explored so far-
When Will We Get To Know The Good Fight Season 5 Release Date?
From the last many months, we have seen how much the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of people. It has brought some serious hurdles in many people’s lives due to which they even faced problems in earning their daily livelihood. The spread of deadly virus not only affected our lives but also created troubles for filmmakers. Many production units and showrunners had to stop the filming of their shows or movies.
The same happened with The Good Fight season 5 as it’s only 7 episodes released which is 3 less than the initial plan of 10 episodes. Because of this pandemic, the drama suffered a loss of 3 episodes. However, prior to the conclusion of season 4, CBS announced the renewal of the series for the fifth consecutive time on 14th May 2020.
Now, fans are waiting to know The Good Fight season 5 release date, but so far we have not received any details about it. Also, there isn’t any news regarding the shooting of the upcoming season. While filming for season 4 the actors told about the trouble that they faced, through a short video clip they mentioned, ”Hello, from The Good Family. We hope you’re well and staying safe during this difficult time.”
Nyambi aka Jay DiPersia added, also included, “Working from home has delayed aspects of post-production and we need one week to catch-up.” So, you can imagine how many obstacles they faced at the time of the shooting. Now, again they have to do filming by adopting all safety measures against this virus. That’s why it’s seeming that we won’t get an opportunity to watch season 5 before the ending of 2022.
How Will The Good Fight Season 5 Plot Be?
One of the best things that make this series better than others is its potential to show practical world problems on the screen with which viewers connect smoothly. Yes, you are going in the right direction. Presently, the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the largest problems and the comments of Baranski claims that this issue can be used in season 5.
While talking to Variety she mentioned, “I think the value of our show is it’s a thinking person’s show, and it pulls you back and makes you say, ‘Wow, these are characters that are living through what we are living through.’ God knows they couldn’t write about this, because it’s only just surfaced in the last four or five weeks with a vengeance-although we began reading about it in December and January. But it will be very interesting next season if we have the next season.”
She further said, “It’s going to be very hard to ignore this, and it’s going to be interesting to see how writers and movie makers and artists address this period of time in the way we address 9/11. It’s going to cut through a hole in our consciousness: Our lives will be before and after.”
We have already told you that not all the episodes of season 4 were aired last year. So, the next season’s story will continue from where the last season finished. Last time we have seen that Diane successfully explored several hidden truths linked to M618. It’s looking that this time he will try to figure out more details about M618.
Who Will Be Part Of The Good Season 5 Cast?
The actors of any show or movie mainly rely on the story and we don’t have much information about the plot of season 5. Also, showrunners haven’t revealed the names of actors who will be part of next season. So, we can’t do anything instead of making predictions. As per recent reports, it’s seeming that the creators will hire some fresh faces for new roles. While some actors from the previous season will make a comeback to reprise their roles.
At the same time, there is also a possibility of the removal of some actors from the cast of season 6. So, there are multiple things that can happen. But makers won’t make drastic changes to the lead actors of the drama, they will replicate their respective roles. According to this, the stars who will be seen in The Good Fight season 6 episodes are –
- Christine Baranski will be seen as Diane Lockhart

Showrunners haven’t told how many episodes will be in the forthcoming season. But as I mentioned earlier that 3 episodes of last season were not released due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, maybe these episodes will be added to season 5. Speculations are suggesting that the sixth season will have 13 episodes.
Is There Any News of The Good Fight Season 5 Trailer?
No, creators haven’t revealed any information about the trailer of season 5. Also, they haven’t begun filming for the forthcoming season, so definitely we will have to wait for a long time before we get an opportunity to watch the trailer.
