Gary Cole returns to reprise his role in “The Good Fight.” The actor has recently talked about the upcoming “Good Wife” spinoff.

Cole has headed to New York to work on his new project. Cole told the Hollywood Reporter that he actually thought he was saying goodbye to the show. Apparently, that wasn’t the case.

The actor shared that all the events that happened in season 1 of the series were designed to add to an image that was "very, very powerful." Cole was referring to the infamous finale moment, in which Diane slaps Alicia across the face the way she had once slapped her bad husband in the pilot. "It had more to do with the show as a whole more than it had to do with Diane and Kurt's relationship isolated from that,” Cole said.

Since the first days of “The Good Wife,” Cole had played Kurt McVeigh, a gun enthusiast and staunch conservative. He’s in a relationship with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), a liberal feminist.

McVeigh was accused of cheating on Baranski in season 1 but that was never officially confirmed. Cole was tight-lipped about whether his character really cheated or not. He also left no clue about McVeigh and Baranski’s state of marriage when the spinoff picks up.

Cole was able to make it clear though that the previous scenes we have seen so far serve as an introduction of what awaits Baranski and her marriage. “They are connected so whatever state their relationship is in, if it's splitting apart or if it’s under stress or whatever it is, it's just another part of her life that they can look at,” Cole said.

Per TV Line, executive producer Robert King teased fans about what to expect from the spinoff, saying it will feature the same “pacing, primacy of actors and writing” seen on “The Good Wife.”

The series is yet to have a confirmed Australian broadcaster, according to TV Tonight.
