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.

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.
