Are you ready for a spinoff from The Good Wife? Cush Jumbo certainly is. The newcomer for season seven won over the hearts of fans as Lucca Quinn, a young attorney who befriends and then partners with Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), eventually following Alicia back to the former big firm home. Producers Robert and Michelle King haven't ruled out a spinoff, and Jumbo is very game to play ball.

"I knock on their door every day. I'm like, ‘What's going on? What's going on with the Lucca Quinn spinoff?'" she told E! News at The Good Wife's wrap party. "Please, I would jump—obviously—on that train. I would love for that to happen. But I'm kind of the last one in, so I have to just kind of wait to see what happens. You can't scare the Kings off. You've got to be careful with the Kings."

The Kings have spoken vaguely about playing around more in the world of The Good Wife, namely with supporting characters, like Carrie Preston's Elsbeth Tascioni.

"CBS seems to be very motivated—they like these characters, but they also like the world and all these subsidiary characters, so there may be a chance," Robert King recently told E! News.

"It's all very preliminary, so we'll see," Michelle King told us.

The Good Wife, Cush Jumbo

Jumbo came into The Good Wife has a longtime fan, so she understandably had some feelings about a very hot topic among the fandom: Margulies' wigs she wore for Alicia. Throughout the seven seasons, the hair changed just about the same amount of time as the main law firm's name. There was the longer look of season one, the sex bangs of season two, the middle-part for season seven…but there's one specific wig that's Jumbo's favorite.

"I've actually been a fan of her most recent look, a kind of shaggy ‘I'm getting a little more action look,' but there's something about the second season that I feel like is when Alicia really became Alicia…she really became this person you want to root for and hate at the same time," she told us.
