"The Good Wife" has apparently scrapped plans to introduce Juliet Rylance as a love interest for Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) in Season 5. According to TVLine, Rylance will not be appearing at all this season.
The actress was originally supposed to make her debut in the Season 5 premiere, but her scenes as Holly, an Assistant State's Attorney with a past connection to Kalinda, were reportedly cut for time. Obviously, the character didn't work out quite as intended, and an insider told TVLine that Rylance had only been contracted for one episode with the potential to recur, rather than landing a recurring guest role.
"Good Wife" creators Robert and Michelle King were talking about the possibility of introducing a new love interest for the mysterious investigator back in May. "Regarding romance, we still haven’t given up on wanting Jill Flint [as Kalinda's FBI love interest Lana] back. She’s been wonderful with Archie. And there is somebody else on the horizon, too. We probably can’t talk much about it until we get some casting in place," they hinted.
Looks like Kalinda will be unlucky in love for a little while longer.
