Matthew Goode Promoted to Series Regular on The Good Wife

by at . Comments

Josh Charles is out (for good). And Matthew Goode is in.

Following the STUNNING events of The Good Wife Season 5 Episode 15, in which Charles' Will Gardner was shot and killed in court, CBS now confirms that Goode has been promoted to series regular for the duration of Season 5.

We'll be seeing a lot more of attorney Finn Polmar over the next few weeks, starting this Sunday with a pivotal scene between him and Alicia on The Good Wife Season 5 Episode 16.

Matthew Goode on The Good Wife

The Good Wife has been renewed for a sixth season, but Goode's status beyond this spring is unknown at this time.

Look for an especially emotional installment of the series on Sunday, as various characters (most notably Alicia, of course) react to Will's passing.

Check out the official CBS trailer for "The Last Call" now:

It take me time to like him. I don't Want him with Alicia maybe Kalinda but I do like Carey and Kalinda unless they bring some one for Carey


Love this bit of casting... I think Matthew will be a great addition.
Altho im pretty sure half of the ppl will boo this idea. Will gone Finn in. Love it.
Lockhart and Polmar. Could be good.
I dont want Alicia to hook up with him... Maybe Kalinda.
