CBS All Access announced the season five order of its hit original series The Good Fight starring Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Nyambi Nyambi, Michael Boatman, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette, Audra McDonald, Delroy Lindo, and Hugh Dancy who joined season four in a recurring role.

The Good Fight remains one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed original series on CBS All Access and we’ve seen a tremendous response from fans this season,” Executive Vice President and Head of Programming Julie McNamara said in a statement.

The fourth season of the show is currently underway but due to the ongoing nationwide production halt, it will conclude with episode seven on Thursday, May 28.

“While we all had hoped to provide audiences with a 10-episode fourth season, we, among many others, have had to adapt due to the pandemic,” McNamara explained. “Although it’s a shortened season, the incredible cast and crew, helmed by the incomparable Robert and Michelle King, have produced a phenomenal seven episodes. We can’t wait for viewers to see the remainder of the season and are excited to bring subscribers even more of the timely, gripping storylines the Kings bring to life next in season five.”

Watch The Good Fight weekly on Thursdays exclusively on CBS All Access.

Jazmin Johnson Talks Returning to ‘Married To Medicine L.A.’ and Practicing a Healthy Lifestyle On and Off-Screen

Born and raised in Inglewood, CA, the fitness enthusiast and mother of a beautiful son, Jazmin Johnson is actually married to medicine. Her husband, Dr. Gadson Johnson, is a successful Los Angeles-based psychiatrist.

Becoming a TV personality was not an overnight decision. In fact, in past conversations with her husband, the couple agreed to never get involved with reality TV. Things, however, have changed since then. Johnson realized that the show could potentially be a great platform to highlight her entrepreneurial talents and also show what her life is really like. “If anybody could showcase what being married to medicine is like, I could, because there’s a lot of people who don’t know about my lifestyle. It looks very glamorous but it’s very rare that we actually enjoy the fruits of our labor.” Things will get more interesting this year, Johnson says. “I am showing a lot more of my life this season, which you didn’t see last season.”

A spinoff of the Atlanta-based original Married To Medicine series, Married To Medicine L.A. first premiered last year on Bravo. Set in La La Land, the show gives viewers an inside look into the busy, luxurious lives of successful women who are either medical professionals themselves or are married to doctors. After a successful first season, the show is now returning for a second go-round with the original cast including Johnson, Dr. Britten ColeDr. Imani Walker, and Shanique Drummond. Joining them are newcomers Dr. Kendra Segura and Lia Dias.

Aside from working on the show, Johnson actively promotes fitness and healthy habits off-screen. Her husband is the one who got her into a regimented workout routine, she admits. “I had to adjust to having structure. I started to go to the gym with him and I started to like it. I liked the way I felt – gaining confidence, and it obviously made me look good.” Now with over a hundred thousand followers on her Instagram, the reality star, (who, by the way, considers trying out scripted television and film in the future) has made it her mission to inspire and motivate others to be more confident. “It’s truly something I’m passionate about and I enjoy,” Johnson says. Her Instagram page is full of great tips and exercise routines for anyone who chooses to lead a happier and healthier life.

Don’t miss Married to Medicine L. A. season 2 premiere this Sunday, May 3! And check out the preview for season 2 below.
