The Good Wife, Season 7

The Good Wife's taking a page out of Chicago's book for its new season seven cast photo. And it's appropriate for two reasons: It's set in Chicago and there are schemes aplenty. Nobody's going to jail though…yet. Don't lie, you got "Cell Block Tango" vibes too.

E! News has your exclusive first look at The Good Wife season seven cast photo featuring new additions Cush Jumbo, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Margo Martindale. Check it out above.

Martindale, Morgan and Jumbo joined the cast as Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) goes in a new direction. She's off on her own, cast out from the big firm she started with Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry), which now includes David Lee (Zach Grenier) and Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski). Alicia's in the bond court trenches and trying to get by with help of new investigator Jason Crouse (Morgan) and bond court pal Lucca Quinn (Jumbo).

"What I know about the show, it's a very smart show that kind of reinvents itself every year and I think this is going to continue along the traditions and I think we're going to actually see Alicia get back to her roots and hopefully along the way there'll be so sizzle to that, but I think the additions of Cush and Margo—I just think it's going to be a really good year," Morgan told E! News on set of The Good Wife earlier this season. "I'm looking forward to it."

All this is happening for Alicia while Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) mounts a presidential campaign with the help of Ruth Eastman (Martindale). Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), meanwhile, has been cast out and is now working as Alicia's chief of staff…while working to take down Peter and Ruth.

"I think I'm most excited for fans to see the intricacies of these relationships are all coming to this head," Margulies told E! News. "That Eli Gold, Alan Cumming's character has really taken a turn and it's effecting everyone. It's like a domino effect and it's fascinating to watch. If anyone follows Shakespeare, he's very Iago all of a sudden. He has a grand plan and he's scheming and it's quite frightening to watch, but really fun to play with."

The Good Wife airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on CBS.
