Speaking with TVLine during the opening day of Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday, “The Good Wife” creators Robert and Michelle King revealed that one of the show’s stars won’t be coming back for Season 4.
That star: Rose Leslie, who will no longer be a series regular when the acclaimed spinoff of “The Good Wife” returns.
As TVLine points out, news of the former “Game of Thrones” star’s departure won’t be surprising for loyal viewers, who watched her character — attorney Maia Rindell — head to Washington, D.C. at the end of the third season to launch a new law firm with Roland Blum (Michael Sheen).
Leslie seemingly hinted at her exit when husband Kit Harington hosted “Saturday Night Live” back in April, making a brief cameo during his monologue to jokingly point out that the end of “Game of Thrones” has left them both unemployed.
“My question is, what are we going to do for money now?” Leslie quipped. “We didn’t save anything! You kept saying, ‘I’m the King of the North! We can order UberEats every night!’”
