There’s some great news for fans of CBS’ The Good Wife as well as those who have been thinking about playing catch up with the legal drama. Hulu is about to feed your need for a smart, sexy show. Starting on Sunday Sept. 1, the first four seasons of the series that features an Emmy-winning turn from stars Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi will be available with a Hulu plus subscription.

[Warning: Spoilers for season four]

For us, one of the most-anticipated premieres for the upcoming Fall TV season has to be the one we’re about to get for The Good Wife. At the end of last season, Alicia made a bold move and we can’t wait to see what the consequences are going to be. After all, she decided to join the other four-year associates at their new firm. Sure it means there will be more distance between her and Will. But Diane, Will and Lockhart Gardner recently made her a partner. There’s no way they’re going to take her defection lightly. The drama is going to be intense and painful when the fifth season premieres Sunday Sept. 29 @ 9/8c on CBS.

Until then, why not refresh your memory on seasons past or if you’re a first-time Good Wife viewer, then find out why millions of people tune in on a weekly basis. Some of our favorite aspects of the show:

  • The Peter-Alicia-Will triangle — just when you think your Team Will, something happens and then we’re all about Peter. That’s the mark of a good triangle.
  • The Guest Stars — this show has some of the most amazingly brilliant guest stars in recent memory. Just to name a few: Nathan Lane, John Noble, Michael J. Fox,Matthew Perry, Martha Plimpton, Carrie Preston, Maura Tierney and Mamie Gummer.
  • The legal cases: This show knows how to put its own spin on some riffs of popular real life cases.
  • The character-driven portion of the series. The characters may not always like each other but they are intricately connected, have valid reasons to explain their reactions and behaviors and share this great chemistry.
  • Kalinda the Lockhart Gardner investigator is beyond badass and always provides fireworks when it comes to situations with the male persuasion. And the same sex persuasion. She is unpredictable and while we don’t always like everything she goes through, she’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a refreshing character.
  • Cary Agos. Enough said. Actually, Gilmore Girls and Friday Night Lights vet Matt Czuchry plays this character and it’s great to see how Cary’s evolved over the course of the series. He’s turned into one of our favorite TGW characters. And while you’re at it, Alan Cumming and Christine Baranski are magnificent as are Josh Charles and Chris Noth.
  • The Judges. Keep a close eye for the various judges that preside over any given case. Most of the time, they are familiar faces. I’m not going to spoil any one of them.

This show has an abundance of riches and very little downside so it’s the perfect series to start watching for the first time or all over again.

The word from Hulu: Viewers can never get enough of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies, “ER”) who ignites the screen as the political wife whose world is shattered when her husband (Chris Noth, “Sex and the City”) is caught in a sex and corruption scandal. Forced to support her family, Alicia returns to work at a Chicago law firm headed by Diane Lockhart (Emmy and Tony Award winner Christine Baranski) and Will Gardner (Josh Charles), a driven attorney with a passion for justice. A gripping blend of courtroom drama, politics and steamy personal relationships, “The Good Wife” also stars Archie Panjabi, Alan Cumming, Matt Czuchry, Makenzie Vegas and Graham Phillips and features all-star guest stars like Michael J. Fox, Matthew Perry, Martha Plimpton and Rita Wilson. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune for its “deluxe production values, smart writing, and outstanding array of actors,” the series earned 30 Emmy nominations. 90 episodes of the legal drama will be available on Hulu Plus.
