Archie Panjabi Leaving 'The Good Wife' For Development Deal with 20th Century Fox

The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi will be leaving the show after this season because she signed a development/holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television, THR reports.

Archie is an Emmy Award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so. Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own,” 20th exec vp casting Sharon Klein said in a statement. “We couldn’t be happier that it will be with us.”

Archie is an amazing actress who helped build Kalinda from the ground up as an enigmatic, powerful and sexy character. It’s been a pleasure to write for her, and we’ll be sad to see her go; but we still have her for the rest of season six, so let’s not exhaust our goodbyes yet,” Robert and Michelle King, The Good Wife show runners, said in a statement. “We look forward to meeting all the wonderful new characters Archie brings to the screen. But either way, we’re keeping the boots.”

ARE YOU SAD to see Archie Panjabi??

  • dee

    Lmao!!! Why am I still invested in this show?? Josh Charles left…now shes leaving…so wtf am i watching this show for exactly???

  • gracie

    I love the Kalinda character and I hope the writers do her justice in deciding how she will exit the series. Please, please, please…no horrible sudden death or disappearence.

  • allison

    They can’t kill another major character off so I think she will disappear. Maybe tie in her ex husband. Leave the door open for her to come back and make a guest appearance.

  • lei

    Good news! Too much seasons for this supposted sexy and enigmatic character…

  • susan johnson

    I am still traumatized by Will’s departure. I had to watch it twice to make sure it wasn’t a dream!

  • kathy

    i say kill her off. let one of her lesbian lovers do away with her. or cary perhaps. i wouldnt mind another sex scene with her and cary. i think he’s hot.
    to be honest, i have barely watched since will died. i miss him so much. talking about sex scenes, we needed another with alicia and will in the elevator. i wish they’d show it again in alicia’s dreams. you know she dreams it!

  • katiep

    NO NO NO NO!!!! THIS IS AWFUL! SHE IS ONE OF the main reasons I watch this show. NO ONE ON THIS SHOW DOES SEX SCENES AS WELL.

  • DJ

    Is she going to be MURDERED as well? Unfortunately, this show has lost it’s edge. I watched it FAITHFULLY for the first 3 seasons, then I lost interest.

  • Irene

    Dang! First Zeva leaves NCIS, and now Kalinda leaves. Cannot replace these two characters/actresses.

  • Lois Valentino

    I am so sorry to hear that…Archie was a very big part of my loving the good wife so much…A very special surprise and cannot be replaced…..Any way a fan or thousands of us can change her mind..PLEASE???

  • B. J.

    First Will and now Kalinda?! Looking forward to seeing what else she can bring to the small (and hopefully big) screen.

  • CBBones

    Maybe she will be convicted of killing her husband? Please don’t kill her off, just in case she wants to come back.

  • Marcia Schleiger

    She will be a big loss to the show. I don’t think they can replace her.

  • Poco

    PLEASE SAY IT ISN’T TRUE!!!!????!!!!
    I will hate to see her go, maybe she can do both? LOL
    Amazing actress…..It won’t be the same with her!!!!

  • UnchainedFever

    I love Kalinda! She is the glue that tied them all together with such awesomeness, I hope to see more of her in the future. Good luck to her!
