‘The Good Fight’ Season 5 Adds ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Star CCH Pounder
Having recently finished a seven-season run as Dr. Loretta Wade on NCIS: New Orleans, Pounder will play Vinetta, a Chicago native looking for justice after a crime spike in her neighborhood, on the Paramount+ drama, TVLine reports.
Pounder’s casting comes after two major departures — Cush Jumbo (who played Lucca Quinn) and Delroy Lindo (who played Adrian Boseman) — in the Season 5 premiere. She joins other new faces this season including Mandy Patinkin, Wayne Brady, Wanda Sykes, and Charmaine Bingwa.
The Good Fight Season 5 sees Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) questioning whether or not it is appropriate to help run an African American law firm alongside Liz Reddick (Audra McDonald). “There’s plenty of drama [and] questions around that between Liz and Diane,” Nyambi Nyambi (who plays investigator Jay Dipersia) told TV Insider. “That’s a huge, huge part of our season.”
