Following an announcement from creators Robert and Michele King in January that this season would be their last working on The Good Wife, it was unclear if the show’s lead, Julianna Margulies, or CBS would let it go quietly into that good night. Now that’s been put to bed: a promo that aired during the Super Bowl Sunday night referred to this seventh season as its last.

A few weeks ago, Margulies all but made her decision on the matter clear, saying during a panel discussion that she would be “unemployed come April.”

The consensus seems to be that it’s a good time to nip the show in the bud, as its plots have been spiraling out of control. But in better news, former member of The Good Wife’s cast Archie Panjabi has a deal with ABC to star in a new pilot called The Jury, which, according to Deadline, “follows a single murder trial a season as seen through the eyes of the individual jurors, exploring the biases and experiences that influence the jurors’ judgment, and how their preconceptions change along the way.”
