After much speculation, CBS used its Super Bowl broadcast to confirm that The Good Wife will end in May. A commercial announcing the critically acclaimed drama's final nine episodes aired during the first half of the game.
Rumblings that this would be the final season started when series creators Robert andMichelle King announced they would be departing to work on CBS's new summer drama BrainDead. Star Julianna Margulies then made comments suggesting she would be unemployed come April.
The show's series finale is scheduled for Sunday, May 8 at 9pm.
The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9pm on CBS.
