When The Good Wife spinoff premieres in February, one thing is certain: It'll have a great cast.

Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters have signed onto the new series, bringing their impressive resumes from stage and screen. Guilfoyle returns to the CBS family, where he spent 14 seasons on CSIPeters is a Tony-winning actress.

They're (re)joining the family in multiple senses, as they're set to play the parents of Maia (played by Rose Leslie). Their characters, Henry and Lenore, anchor one of the most influential families in Chicago. Henry is a popular financial advisor whose success may only be matched by Lenore's own brilliance. Together, they've powered their private investment firm to new heights.

Their daughter, Maia, has recently started to practice law and will be teaming up with her godmother, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), the iconic lawyer from The Good Wife. In the new series, the two lawyers will run headlong into a financial scandal. Fans will also get to see the return of other beloved characters, including Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) and Marissa Gold (Sarah Steele).

The Tony and SAG Award-nominated Delroy Lindo has also joined the cast as attorney Robert Boseman, who clashes with Lockhart.
