Julianna Margulies Reflects on The Good Wife's First Season: 'I Was Overwhelmed with Being a New Mom'
Originally posted 04/29/2016 11:30AM
After seven stunning seasons, The Good Wife is finally coming to an end on May 8.
When the cast looks back on the show's early years, it's hard not to be surprised by how far they've come – especially for the show's lead, Julianna Margulies, who had a particularly hard time in the first season.
"I was so overwhelmed with being a new mom and being the lead of the show and trying to make everything work," Margulies told PEOPLE Thursday at the show's series finale party at New York City's Museum of Modern Art. "Anyone that has done a show can tell you that your first season is the hardest because nothing has been fleshed out yet."

The Good Wife Creators Talk Final Season: 'This Is Not a Show That Is Ending Because Anybody Hates Each Other'

The Good Wife may be ending, but it's not because of any bad blood.
During a Monday press conference call, co-creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King opened up about the recent news that the show will conclude after nine episodes – which CBS announced with an ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
"This is not a show that is ending because anybody hates each other. We're ending the show because really it is a show that should be ending," Robert told reporters, explaining that even after seven years working together, the cast and crew are "still very happy with each other" – in fact, they "couldn't be happier."

Prepare to say goodbye to The Good Wife.
The critically acclaimed CBS drama will be coming to an end, the network announced in an ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The news comes just weeks after CBS boss Glenn Geller revealed that the drama's creators, Robert and Michelle King, would not be returning as showrunners if The Good Wife was renewed for an eighth season.

The Good Wife: Archie Panjabi Fires Back After Julianna Margulies Says They Couldn't Shoot Final Scene Together Because of The Fall
Originally posted 10/05/2015 12:00PM
In May, Archie Panjabi's bittersweet exit from The Good Wife was mired by the news that she and costar Julianna Margulies did not actually film their characters' last scene together.
As Entertainment Weekly confirmed, CBS used a split-screen, editing the actresses into the same frame – reportedly because of discord between them.
Margulies, 49, tried to temper the rumors at the New Yorker Festival on Sunday, denying a feud.

It was a bittersweet moment for fans of The Good Wife when Alicia and Kalinda finally shared a scene during the finale after years of their interaction consisting solely of phone calls.
For whatever reason – as fans were quick to point out – something was not quite right about the scene; it appeared as if Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi did not actually film it together.

After six seasons on The Good Wife, Archie Panjabi made her exit not with a bang but with a whimper.
Of course, that's more or less Kalinda's way – she's never been flashy so much as quietly, lethally effective. Still, her last scene wasn't quite that, either.
The scene that many Good Wife fans had been waiting for was between Kalinda and Alicia (Julianna Margulies), who hadn't shared a screen since season 5 and whose few interactions since had been via cell phone.
