The Good Wife cast and creators will wave goodbye to the CBS series’ fans at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, according to Entertainment Weekly. This year’s Tribeca Film Festival will be held in New York City from April 13 through April 24.
Aside from The Good Wife, the festival will also feature conversations about six TV premieres: HBO’s The Night Of, AMC’s The Night Manager, TNT’s Animal Kingdom, Comedy Central’s Time Traveling Bong, History’s Roots, and OWN’s Greenleaf.
Julianna Margulies will be joined by her The Good Wife co-stars, as well as the series’ creators to say goodbye to the CBS show’s fans. The seven-season long TV show, which has its final episode scheduled for May, was created by Michelle King and Robert King and saw its first episode aired on September 22, 2009.

Apart from The Good Wife‘s Margulies, the festival will be attended by such big names as Oprah, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin, who are set to promote their future TV projects.
Although the Tribeca Film Festival was focused solely on independent movies, this year’s festival will offer exclusive TV series content via Tribeca Tune In: special events, screenings as well as previews of TV shows, including one for the final episode of The Good Wife.
For the festival’s special events segment, organizers of the Tribeca Film Festival will also present a live commentary of HBO’s Six Feet Under final episode. The commentary will be provided by the series creator himself, Alan Ball. The Good Wife, meanwhile, will feature a live event of its own: a live retrospective conversation.
The live retrospective conversation will be attended by CBS’ The Good Wife cast members Margulies, Christine Baranski (who portrays Diane Lockhart), and Cush Jumbo (Lucca Quinn) as well the series’ creators Michelle King and Robert King. The conversation comes in addition to the preview of the final episode of the show.
The Good Wife has been nominated for Emmy awards and Golden Globe awards in the drama categories, and the show will end its seven-season run in May. The series has been named one of the most intelligent TV shows of our time thanks to its raw and unembellished portrayal of modern politics and law.
For those who are interested in the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival only to see the preview of the final episode of The Good Wife, show up at John Zuccotti Theater in New York on Sunday, April 17 at 5 p.m.

Meanwhile, The Good Wife star Chris Noth is already moving on to new projects outside CBS. The 61-year-old actor, who plays Peter Florrick on the CBS’ show, was cast as a series regular for the new season of Tyrant, as reported by Deadline.
The third season of FX drama Tyrant will premiere in June. The Good Wife star is set to play the role of an American general named William Cogswell. According to the plot, the general was banned from entering the fictional country Abbudin, but is now allowed to return to the country after Bassam “Barry” Al-Fayeed becomes the president.
On The Good Wife, Noth plays the role of Illinois Governor Peter Florrick, the husband of Julianna Margulies’ Alicia Florrick. But as the CBS’ show is wrapping up its seventh season, the actor is looking for new opportunities to move on to, and it seems that he has found one.
Apart from The Good Wife, Noth starred on NBC’s Law & Order as Detective Mike Logan, and on HBO’s Sex and the City as Mr. Big. The actor is also set to make an onscreen appearance on Netflix’s indie films White Girl and Chronically Metropolitan.
