The series, from executive producers Robert and Michelle King (“The Good Wife,” EVIL), has been praised by critics and fans alike for its uncanny ability to speak to the world in which we live with Elle.com calling THE GOOD FIGHT “…the most relevant show on TV” and Paste Magazine calling it “group therapy” and “...the fever dream we’ve all been waiting for.”
The series fourth season premiered with an alternate reality where Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, but the season also tackled issues spanning racial injustice, the “Me Too” movement, reparations, white privilege, corporate behemoths, sexual identity and closed with a series finale focused on Jeffrey Epstein.
