"The Good Wife" fans always love to watch the onscreen chemistry between Alicia Florrick and Will Gardner. But since Josh Charles' character met his demise in season 5, it is unlikely that the actor will reprise his role in season 7.
However, followers of the CBS legal drama can expect him to join the creative team of upcoming sequel, as he recently expressed his interest to be part of the show.
"I would love to return. I don't know. I was supposed to do one last year, and then the schedule didn't work out with Wet Hot [American Summer: First Day of Camp production]. That's my family over there. But I don't know about this season. Probably not because I'm busy this year but it's possible," Charles told E!Online.
Meanwhile, if "The Good Wife" creators plan flashback episodes or a journey through Alicia's mind as they showed in episode 14 of season 6 titled "Mind's Eye", then Margulies may share screen space with the actor in season 7.
But the official synopsis indicates that the protagonist will focus on her law career and try to revive it with the help of an investigator. It also states that her husband and the governor of Illinois, Peter Florrick, will be introduced as a candidate for presidential election.
Here is the official synopsis for seventh season of CBS legal drama:
Alicia attempts to revive her struggling law career by once again starting her own law firm, this time with the assistance of Jason Crouse (new cast member Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a calm, experienced investigator whom she hires. Also, to help with his Presidential campaign, Peter engages Willa Eastman (Margo Martindale, recurring), a national strategist who hides her intelligence and cunning under a fake, folksy charm, creating an interesting dynamic with Eli in the process. In addition, Cush Jumbo joins the cast as attorney Lucca Quinn.
"The Good Wife" fans can also except to watch a few real life political issues in season 7 as executive producer Robert King revealed that Chris Noth's character will be running against Hillary Clinton.
"We're trying to parallel what's happening on our show with what's happening in reality. If Peter runs, he is running against Hillary," he told TV Line.
CBS will premiere "The Good Wife" season 7 on Sunday, 4 October at 9pm.
