The Good Fight season 6 trailer


The sixth and final season of The Good Fight is expected to arrive on Paramount+ with a total of 10 episodes. The official trailer for the sixth season of the series shows Diane Lockhart experiencing deja vu, and later telling her therapist,

''I used to believe in progress...that we learned from our mistakes...I feel like I'm back where I was six years ago.''

The trailer offers a peek into Diane's chaotic mindset and the ''civil war'' that's set to unfold this season. Overall, the trailer is quite dramatic but doesn't give away too many details that could potentially spoil the viewing experience. The official synopsis of the upcoming season, according to Paramount Press Express, reads:

''The upcoming sixth season of THE GOOD FIGHT has Diane feeling like she’s going crazy, struggling with an uneasy sense of déjà vu, with everything from Roe v. Wade, to voting rights, to Cold War aggressions returning. Meanwhile, the lawyers of Reddick & Associates wonder if the violence that they see all around them points to an impending civil war.''

One of the most striking things about the previous season was the evolution of Diane's relationship with her husband Kurt. Despite the differences in their beliefs and political ideologies, they somehow stick to each other. It'll be interesting to see how things pan out for Diane in the upcoming season.
