'The Good Fight' cast and crew virtually come together to tell fans why there won't be a new episode this week
The team went online to explain the delay in a fashion quite similar to the quick educational segments that have been known to feature on the series
COVID-19 has forced a lot of people to work from home, and the cast and crew of 'The Good Fight' are no exception. 'The Good Fight' team had to halt production of the series mid-season, due to coronavirus concerns. While the next episode has been shot, post-production remains a difficult task, and the team needed an extra week to figure out how to make it all work while working from home.
Last week's episode left quite a mystery on the table, with the introduction of Memo 618, a document that seemingly exempts the rich from the law. That mystery will have to wait just a little longer, however, while the post-production team gets the episode ready for airing. Considering the show stopped production mid-season, it is likely that there will be another season break somewhere down the line.
The cast and crew of 'The Good Fight' all went online to explain the delay for this week's episode, in a fashion quite similar to the quick educational segments that have been known to feature on the series. A detailed explanation is given for just one aspect of post-production — adding the soundtrack to the episode, which is a process that covers a lot of distance, not all being done in one place. The cast and crew also check in from their homes, coming together to collectively sing Johnny Cash's classic 'You Are My Sunshine.' You can watch the heartwarming video below:
The above video was included at the end of Episode 2, which also included a quick promo for the next episode, in which things heat up at Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) continues to investigate Memo 618, while the partners are dealing with problems of their own. The official synopsis for the next episode reads, "When DNC head Frank Landau asks Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart for help with a plan to engage African-American voters, the resulting discussion turns personal for one of the partners." The cast and crew may be singing about sunshine, but for the recently acquired law firm, life under STR Laurie is anything but.
The next episode of 'The Good Fight' releases April 30, on CBS All Access.
