‘The Good Wife’ Spoilers: Season 6 March Return Brings Big Guest Stars

Fans are anxious for more new episodes of The Good Wife, but there’s a bit of time yet to wait. Season 6 resumes again on March 1, and it sounds as if there are some great things ahead in the episodes airing during the back part of the season. What Good Wife spoilers are available?

TVLine shares that Gary Cole will be back for a multi-episode story arc this spring. As Good Wife fans know, Cole has played the character of Kurt McVeigh on-and-off throughout the run of the series. He hasn’t been seen for a while, not since November 2013, soon after his character got married to Diane Lockhart, played by Christine Baranski.

Little about the marriage is referenced on-screen, so fans will surely be thrilled to get a peek at the two back in the mix of things together. So far, it hasn’t been revealed just when Cole will be back or what McVeigh will be doing in his return.

There’s another familiar face popping up this spring as well. Oliver Platt, who has starred in shows such as The West Wing, Huff, Nip/Tuck, The Big C, Fargo, and The American Experience, has also signed on for a multi-episode arc. Yahoo! TV notes that he will play a character named R.D. who is a politically conservative businessman said to be approachable and intelligent.

Just how will Kurt McVeigh and R.D. figure into the happenings this spring? Nothing more has been revealed as of yet, but it sounds as if the latter part of Season 6 will be filled with intriguing storylines. E! Online teases Good Wife spoilers that in addition, Rachael Harris will return in the role of the mayor’s aide while Ed Asner pops up in an upcoming episode as well.

Many fans have been quite disappointed by the news that Archie Panjabi is leaving at the end of this season, but there have definitely been hints that she has a lot of story yet to play in the role of Kalinda before she goes. Will Alicia win the election for State’s Attorney? Will Cary be able to settle down now that his legal woes are over? Just how much havoc will David Lee cause now that he’s joined the firm?

While there has been some buzz that the show could be at risk of being canceled, others aren’t worried. In addition, a break for this show during this time of year is not unusual, notes E! Online. With the Super Bowl and numerous award shows taking up valuable Sunday night television real estate throughout February, CBS wisely rests The Good Wife and brings out the big guns come March. Stay tuned for further spoilers and updates as the March 1 return draws near.
