The Good Wife Season 7 spoilers: next season focuses on Alicia's gubernatorial bid and new legal office; who will she partner with?


Fans can expect The Good WifeSeason 7 to explore the relationship between Alicia Florrick (Julianna Marguiles) and campaign manager Jonathan Elfman (Steven Pasquale) when the show returns. 

According to IBTimes, it is likely that Alicia is condering a run for governor if her husband Peter (Chris North) pushes through with his plan to become vice president. On the other hand, there is also a possibility that Alicia will pursue her plans to start a law firm despite some setbacks.

At the end of the season finale, Alicia is still in search of a partner to start her law firm after Finn Polmar (Matthew Goode) left.

Goode, a series regular, will not be returning to the show next season after it was reported that the actor signed on to reprise his role as Henry Talbot in the sixth and final season of Downton Abbey.

He may pop up for a guest appearance or two, according to a TVLine report.

However, at the end of the finale, Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) left a standing offer with Alicia to partner up. Considering the long time rivalry between the two characters, Alicia is expected to pass on the offer.

Besides, accepting Louis’s proposal could seriously impact her relationship with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and Cary Agos (Czuchry) who will also be dealing with the departure of his romantic interest Kalinda (Archie Panjabi).

While the show is down two series regulars, there are also those who will return.

According to Marguiles, David Hyde Pierce, who plays Frank Prady will come back to the show after his initial six episode arc.

“Working with David Hyde Pierce was incredible. He did a six-episode arc, but he’ll come back. . .It’s not clear in what capacity Pierce’s character, Frank Prady would return (as the new State’s Attorney or back to his old job as political commentator), but whatever it is, we’re ready for it,” she said to Vanity Fair.
