The Good Fight season 4 cheat sheet

Season 4 premiered on CBS All Access in the US on Thursday April 9 with new episodes following weekly. As it's a streaming-only affair, that means you have to watch online - and midnight PT or 3am ET is when you can expect the latest instalment to drop. 

The CBS All Access legal drama has become far more than a mere spin-off of 'The Good Wife' since it first aired in 2017. Rather, it has developed into a groundbreaking political satire of its own with ripped-from-the-headline narratives that might make you blush.

Spoiler alert: if you're not totally up-to-date with The Good Fight season 4, unwelcome surprises might lurk below. In which case, you can scroll down to our spoiler-free guide to watching the show.

The season 4 opener, for example, was a standalone episode set entirely in an alternate reality where Hillary Clinton is president after beating Donald Trump in the 2016 US election.

That followed the season 3 Good Fight cliffhanger, which saw Reddick, Boseman and Lockhart forced to accept an offer from massive multi-national law firm, STR Laurie,after falling into financial difficulties. 

Now operating as a small subsidiary, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), Adrian Boseman (Delroy Lindo), Liz Reddick (Audra McDonald) and the rest of the firm must now survive being micromanaged, all the while investigating the mysterious memo 618 - a legal loophole that's allowing the rich and powerful to ignore judicial rulings.

The new season boasts the welcome return of Michael J. Fox as manipulative lawyer Louis Canning, and Zach Grenier as plain-speaking attorney David Lee, with Hugh Dancy and John Larroquette also set to feature.
