Julianna Margulies: I turned down The Good Fight's invitation for an Alicia Florrick cameo
Margulies confirms to TVLine she was invited to bring her Good Wife character to the first season of the CBS All Access spinoff of her hit CBS drama. "I really didn't want to do it when they asked me in the first season because I didn't think that was fair" to the cast, Margulies says, adding: "I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been (all) about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” Margulies adds that she won't rule out a future Good Fight cameo, but she hasn't been watching the show because "it’s hard for me to watch a law show right now, which is how I felt after ER.”

Creators Robert and Michelle King confirm last summer's Corinne Olympios-DeMario Jackson controversy inspired this week's episode.

The Good Fight returns for a second season that will tackle everything from President Trump to Aziz Ansari
"We'll do any topic," says co-creator Michelle King about the new season, premiering Sunday, that will have storylines ranging from Democrats wanting to impeach Trump to how the Ansari sexual harassment scandal played out in the media. "We always feel better about our characters when they live in the real world you live in,” says co-creator Robert King. “I think it always helps that they’re walking down the same streets you are, they’re reacting to the same news you are. It gives that extra sense of reality and specificity.” ALSO: Christine Baranski meets her match in Audra McDonald.

The Good Fight is naming each Season 2 episode after how many days President Trump has been in office
The Season 2 premiere, which will be available on CBS All Access on March 4, will be titled "Day 408." The following episode will be called "Day 415." Co-creator Robert King explains that the naming pattern aims to make the Trump presidency feel like a hostage crisis, as Season 2 grapples with the "evergreens of this administration," including impeachment, Russia, prostitution, sexual harassment and a nod to Stormy Daniels. As Lisa de Moraes explains, co-creators Robert and Michelle King "have not yet decided the degree to which they will draw attention to the hostage-crisis episode titles, any one of which might become an iconic number if something big breaks in Trumpocalypse on that day."
