Press Release
CBS has resolved the mystery surrounding "Elsbeth," the spinoff from "The Good Wife," by renewing it for a second season, as confirmed by TVLine.

So far this season, "Elsbeth" has captured an average audience of 7.3 million viewers and achieved a 0.45 demographic rating, factoring in delayed viewing. This represents a 25% increase in viewership over "CSI: Vegas" in the same Thursday night slot last year, with identical demographic performance. Among the 14 dramas CBS has broadcast this TV season, "Elsbeth" is ranked tenth in total audience and surpasses only "NCIS: Sydney" in the demographic.

"Elsbeth has truly captivated viewers with its unique mix of engaging humor, intriguing 'how-done-it' plots, and the quirky genius of its protagonist, Elsbeth Tascioni," stated Amy Reisenbach, CBS Entertainment President. She praised executive producers Robert and Michelle King for their proven success in creating critically acclaimed shows filled with memorable characters. Showrunner Jonathan Tolins and his team, Reisenbach noted, have crafted a compelling, New York City-centered narrative that audiences love. She also commended the talented cast, led by Carrie Preston, Wendell Pierce, and Carra Patterson, and a top-tier roster of weekly guest stars for bringing these characters to life.

As the second spinoff of "The Good Wife" following Paramount+'s "The Good Fight," "Elsbeth" features Carrie Preston reprising her role as the sharp yet unconventional lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni. She uses her unique perspective to make keen observations and solve crimes with the NYPD. Wendell Pierce co-stars as NYPD Captain C.W. Wagner, and Carra Patterson portrays Kaya Blanke, a police officer who grows to value Elsbeth’s unconventional methods.

The renewal announcement comes midway through the show’s debut season, which airs new episodes on Thursdays at 10/9c. In tonight’s episode, Elsbeth and Kaya delve into the lives of a tennis star’s coach and father, portrayed by Blair Underwood, following the star’s mysterious death.
