With the end of True Blood in sight, Carrie Preston is looking toward the future. And that future includes The Good Wife…and Kickstarter?
Preston will reprise her Emmy-winning role of Elsbeth Tascioni on The Good Wife this year—the amount of episodes remains indeterminate—but beyond that? Well, that's where Kickstarter comes in.
"There you go, I'll be there," Preston told E! News at Comic-Con after a Kickstarter was suggested. "I'll do the Kickstarter videos. I'll beg people, more Elsbeth! I am coming back for a couple more episodes, so…"
Preston's The Good Wife character is not just a fan favorite, but is also beloved by the show's creators, Robert and Michelle King.
"We've discussed it internally," Robert King told E! News in April. "It always comes down to where you can put your energy. Our worry is that—we're not the kind of showrunners, unfortunately, who can take our eyes off this and do two things at once. I wish we could because there's no one more fun to work with and better comedian than Carrie Preston. There's such a cool show there.
"She's such a mental genius and you can kind of imagine her life like the way you could Colombo...I think it's the same thing with Elsbeth Tascioni, she's such a pristine comic conception that would be lovely to explore," he said.
Safe to say our fingers are still crossed that this happens. More Carrie Preston as Elsbeth Tascioni is always a good thing.
The Good Wife season six premieres Sunday, Sept. 21, at 9 p.m. on CBS.
