Actor Wanda Sykes, known for Black-ish and Monster-in-Law, is set to star in a recurring role on the fifth season of the acclaimed legal drama The Good Fight. The new season will see Diane (Christine Baranski) forced to question whether it’s appropriate for her to help run an African American law firm with Liz (Audra McDonald) when the firm loses two top lawyers. Meanwhile, Marissa (Sarah Steele) and the firm become entangled with Hal Wackner (Mandy Patinkin), a regular Chicagoan who decides to open his own courtroom in the back of a copy shop. Disney’s Snow White Live-Action Movie Ropes In West Side Story Star Rachel Zegler as the Lead.

According to Deadline, Sykes will play Allegra Durado, a brilliant, strategic attorney who has been away from the law for ten years while trying to finish her book. “Our holy grail of casting is always to find dramatic actors who can also deliver the comedy, and that pretty much defines Wanda. We couldn’t feel more fortunate to be working with her,” co-creators Robert and Michelle King said.
