GOOD FIGHT, THE (CBSAA) - Original cast member Cush Jumbo is departing the series after four seasons. "I have had the most amazing time over the last five years working with Robert, Michelle and the crews of both The Good Wife and The Good Fight," the actress said in a statement. "I will miss them all so much, but am so excited to explore pastures new.

THANKS A MILLION (Quibi) - The streaming service has commissioned a second season of the Jennifer Lopez-produced series. (Deadline.com)
VIRGIN RIVER (Netflix) - Sarah Dugdale has joined the cast of the show's upcoming second season, while Grayson Gurnsey's Ricky has been promoted to series regular. Dugdale will play Lizzie, "a powder keg of cunning, beauty and unbridled impulsivity, who blows into the small town of Virgin River like a tornado after her parents ship her off in the wake of a shoplifting bust."
