The Good Fight will return for season 5 with one of its major players heading for the exit door.

Via Entertainment Weekly, it's been confirmed that Lucca Quinn actress Cush Jumbo has decided to seek new challenges, but hopefully when the coronavirus interruption of season 4 subsides, she'll be able to finish off her character's storyline.

In a statement, Jumbo addressed her departure: "I have had the most amazing time over the last five years working with Robert [King], Michelle [King] and the crews of both The Good Wife and The Good Fight. I will miss them all so much, but am so excited to explore pastures new.

"Due to the pandemic forcing us to shut down early we weren't able to wrap up Lucca's story fully and so I hope if schedules allow I can return next season to do that."

Obviously this needs to happen, so let's just keep our collective fingers crossed that the star's schedule aligns with that of the show.

Both Robert and Michelle commented: "We've loved every moment of working with Cush for the last five years and everyone in The Good Fight universe will miss her terribly.

"Given the pandemic-forced premature ending of season 4, it's our hope that Cush will be able to return when we resume filming season 5 in order to give Lucca a proper send-off."

The Good Fight airs on CBS All Access.
