As of now, the show will be available for streaming only in two regions that are the US and UK region. After this, the show will slowly expand its base to other regions wherever Netflix is available.
Can we ever expect season 8?
Well, as of now it is very hard to say that there will be a Season 8 to ‘The Good Wife’. While renewing season 7, CBS had confirmed that Season Seven of The Good Wife shall be the last of its season with each character build-up culminating to a logical end. Expecting a season eight will not be a good idea.
However, a spin-off of the show by the name ‘The Good Fight’ is available that was set one year after the finale of ‘The Good Wife’.
Additionally, The Good Fight first aired on February 19, 2017, starring Christine Baranski which is exclusively owned by CBS All Access.
