The Good Wife to end after its seventh season.

The Good Wife was my favourite television drama for a number of years. The sixth season had some pretty major issues, and I’ve only seen the first four episodes of its seventh season. CBS announced the upcoming end of the show via a promo during the Super Bowl, and there’s an announcement on the CBS promo page:

The Good Wife Writers’ Twitter feed has more information, including the title of the series finale. I’m really grateful that CBS allowed this show seven seasons, even though I’m no longer a regular viewer. The Good Wife wasn’t always the best show on television, but it was my favourite. The nature of television means that creators don’t always get to finish telling their story, and I’m glad The Good Wife didn’t get to the renewal past its use by date stage that How I Met Your Mother did. Shows can go on too long and at the same time not long enough. Robert and Michelle King have other shows in the pipeline with CBS, so we’ll be seeing more of them.
