Entertainment Weekly’s new issue features an article about The Good Fight’s upcoming season ; scans from the magazine as well as a new still of Rose as Maia Rindell can be found in the gallery. Here’s what is said about Rose’s character and Roland Blum, played by Michael Sheen :
Blum « is like a cancer », says Michelle King, and his first victim – or perhaps we should say « acolyte » – is Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie), who’s feeling underappreciated at work. « He takes her under his wing, kind of against her will », says Sheen. Maia, says Leslie, « is in awe of the way Roland Blum operates. He’s devious and corrupt, and Maia feels that may be the path for her. She’s tackling some big moral issues inside her head. »
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY — Rose Leslie is clearing up a story about herself, husband Kit Harington, and the ending of Game of Thrones. We asked The Good Fight and former GoT actress for her side of that report where Harington said she asked him how the show’s upcoming top-secret final season ends. Harington said he told her and then “she wouldn’t talk to me for about three days.” The story is almost true, except for a rather key bit: Their conversation was about the ending of season 7, not season 8.
“I genuinely don’t know the ending [of the show],” Leslie said. “He told me the ending of last season and I remember getting a bit uppity about that … He happened to tell me – and this is a spoiler for anybody who hasn’t seen the last season – he happened to tell me that one of the dragons fall into the ice lake, and then we see the dragon being dragged out of the water and the dragon breathes fire — or ice, I can’t quite remember which one it is, I think it’s fire — onto The Wall, and then, of course, that’s when all the [Army of the Dead] can then cross over. So he told me about the dragon and I got rather livid with him, because I said, ‘You weren’t supposed to tell me everything! And that’s a huge piece of information!’ And he’s like, ‘Well, you asked!’ And I was like, ‘I know.’”
Leslie added: “To be fair I was probably rather ridiculous in the way I phrased it. I was like, ‘Tell me some things, but don’t tell me other things.’ But I actually don’t know the ending to [the show] because, believe it or not, it’s such a monumental phenomenal show, and I want to be like the rest of the world and watch it in real time and get that build up and anticipation. I want to finally come to the final episode and truly – and I honestly mean this – truly not know which way it goes.”
So did Leslie really not speak to Harington for three days over the ice dragon spoiler?
“That was an exaggeration,” she said. “I love that he said three days. Look at him trying to get a soundbite. That’s hilarious!”
Previously, Harington made some Leslie-related headlines by noting his wife rather not say her character’s famous catchphrase, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” Leslie played Ygritte, the love interest of Harington’s Jon Snow, on the show for three seasons. The duo got married last July.
The Good Fight returns for season 3 on March 14. Game of Thrones returns for its final season April 14.
After months of waiting, we now have our first look at The Good Fight Season 3 ! The trailer and release date have been unveiled yesterday during the show’s panel at the 2019 Winter TCA Press Tour in California. The creators of the show, Christine Baranski, Audra McDonald & Michael Sheen were in attendance to talk about the show and the new season which – mark your calendars ! – will premiere on March 14th on CBS All Access ! We also got the first stills of Rose as lawyer Maia Rindell (they have been added in high quality in the gallery and leave us wondering what could possibly be going on in these scenes) as well as some new informations about the season :
Season 3 titles are inspired by Friends, starting with « The One… » (for instance, « The One Inspired by Roy Cohn ») Michelle King said that they liked Season 2’s Trump administration day-count titles but it made it tough for them to remember.
The season will feature one soliloquy per episode as well as a few musical numbers.
There will be one Schoolhouse Rock type video per episode in the new season to explain things troll farms and NDAs.
Season 3 will have 10 episodes (Season 2 had 13 and Season had 10 as well).
Rose has been very quiet this year so even the smallest news is gladly welcomed ! You might have seen that the second season of ‘The Good Fight’ has been released on DVD last month. She doesn’t appear in any of the five short deleted scenes but she is featured in the gag reel which is as funny as the first one from the previous season :
Edit : For reasons still unknown, Rose sadly wasn’t able to attend the event and had to cancel.
Finally, some exciting news ! PaleyFest New York 2018 has released its official session schedule for the annual two-week celebration of the television series format and this year’s selection includes The Good Fight ! The panel will happen on October 15th at 7PM and several cast members including Rose are scheduled to attend.

The day has come : the 13th and last episode of the Season 2 of The Good Fight is here ! Sadly Rose isn’t in many scenes, but 164 HD screen captures have been added to the gallery. Reminder that there will be a third season which should be released next year, but we don’t know much about it for now.

EW – CBS All Access has announced that a third season of The Good Fight is on its way.

The series also stars Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi, and Delroy Lindo.
“The Good Fight is a perfect example of what we strive for a CBS All Access original series to be: thought-provoking, boundary-pushing and, most of all, incredibly entertaining,” said original content chief Julie McNamara in a statement. “We can’t wait to see what Robert and Michelle King, their creative team and the incomparable cast will bring to audiences in season three.”
The series is from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King. If you want to catch up, both seasons 1 and 2 can be found on CBS All Access. The finale for this year will be available to stream on May 27. To get a taste of the drama, read our most recent recap here. (source)
