Among the crazy ads and killer movie trailers during Super Bowl 50 on Sunday night, a monumental Good Wife spot aired, one announcing the series' unexpected conclusion. The series launched in 2009; this is its seventh season. The finale will air on May 8.

In a statement, star Julianna Margulies said:

“[It's] been an absolute honor to be a part of a series that, throughout seven years, never settled on being just good—but always strived to be extraordinary. I have witnessed magic happen when [creators/showrunners] Robert and Michelle King put pen to paper, and it has been a privilege to be in the company of their brilliance.”

King & King said The Good Wife has been “the creative experience of a lifetime," adding that they're "looking forward to using this seventh season to bring Alicia’s story to its natural conclusion."
