at .

Ever since The Good Fight debuted, fans have been clamoring for more characters from parent series, The Good Wife, to pop up for an episode or two. 

The good news is that another star has signed up to appear on the streaming sequel. 

According to Deadline, Mike Colter will reprise the role of Lemond Bishop during The Good Fight Season 2.

If you're a fan of The Good Wife, you will already know that Lemond's story seemingly concluded during The Good Wife Season 6 when the character wound up in prison for his crimes. 

You may recall that he was one of the most controversial clients in the history of Lockhart/Gardner's expansive roster. 

He was a notorious drug lord, but viewers got to witness a softer side to him throughout his recurring role on The Good Wife. 

It's unclear at this stage what brings him back into the fold, but we're sure he's going to need some defense from some of the characters on The Good Fight.
