Worry not, "Good Wife" fans: Will Gardner (Josh Charles) is sticking around.

Other than Chris Noth, who also had a four-year contract, the rest of the "Good Wife" cast is signed on for six years.

It makes sense that Charles isn't quite ready the CBS drama, though. In addition to being an integral part of the Lockhart/Gardner gang, Charles directed an episode this season.

"It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a while," Charles told EW. "I think it could, in the long run, make me an even better actor — just being able to see from the other side the kind of acting that I like, that I aspire to do, and working with everybody to help tell the same story."

"The Good Wife" airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
