Archie Panjabi Is Leaving The Good Wife

The Good Wife‘s British actress Archie punjabi, 42 who has played Kalinda Sharma since the drama launched in 2009 – will leave the CBS show at the end of the season.

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 good-byes yet. We look forward to meeting all the wonderful new characters Archie brings to the screen. But either way, we’re keeping the boots.”

Panjabi’s contract ends in May. She’s already lined up a new gig to star in a yet-to-be-determined pilot for 20th Century Fox TV.

“Archie is an amazing actress who helped build Kalinda from the ground up as an enigmatic, powerful, and sexy character,” Robert and Michelle King, the drama’s creators, said in a statement.
