'The Good Wife' Season 3: New 2012 Trailer (VIDEO)

When the third season of "The Good Wife" returns with new episodes in 2012, things look like they'll be heating up, according to a new trailer.

We last saw our Lockhart/Gardner heroes dealing with a mix of personal and professional triumphs and shortcomings: Kalinda and Alicia began to thaw out their friendship, Diane started mentoring Alicia, Wendy Scott-Carr revealed she's going after Peter and Will and Alicia ended their fling. As you can see, Alicia was quite busy.

New episodes start Sun., Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS with returning guest star Carrie Preston. Jason Biggs stops by Jan. 15 and "The Good Wife" closes out the month with new episodes on Jan. 22 and Jan. 29.
