The Good Wife Creators Drop Season 8 Bombshell

at .  Updated at .

CBS is yet to renew The Good Wife for an eighth season.

But the show's well-known creators have let it be known that they will NOT be part of the beloved series if the network does, indeed, bring it back in 2017.

Getting Help - The Good Wife

Speaking on behalf of his wife, Michelle King, Robert King said the following to TVLine in regard to the future of the Sunday night drama:

“The bottom line is CBS is trying to make deals for an eighth season, so we would be there in a supervisory role, but the storytelling we have will finish in the seventh year.

"That doesn’t mean we’re putting Alicia in her grave, because you couldn’t do an eighth season after that. But to our minds, we have always written with the idea we could end this season a certain way so that it would make it a satisfactory [conclusion to the] series."

The Good Wife, of course, has become a show unafraid of change.

From Alicia starting her own law firm... to running for State's Attorney... to Peter now campaigning for the Presidency, the series is always moving full steam ahead.

But can you imagine it doing so without the two people who created it running the show?
