'The Good Wife' Season 2 DVD - Sept. 6th

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Golden Globe winner Julianna Margulies returns in "one of network TV's strongest dramas" (Time) when The Good Wife: The Second Season arrives on DVD September 6 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. Including exclusive bonus materials, the riveting second season of the intense legal drama about the scorned wife of a disgraced politician continues to reign as one of the top 10 most watched scripted shows. The DVD premieres just in time for the Season Three broadcast premiere on Sunday, September 25 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

Special highlights in the DVD collection include "A Conversation With The Kings," a fascinating interview with series creators (and husband and wife team) Robert and Michelle King, footage from the season one DVD release party, an inside look at a select episode, personal videos from The Good Wife star Alan Cumming, numerous deleted scenes, and more.

In the hit show's second season, Margulies returns as Alicia Florrick, a wife and mother who boldly assumes full responsibility for her family and re-enters the workforce after her husband's very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. Pushing aside the crushing humiliation, Alicia returns to her former career as a defense attorney. Working at a prestigious Chicago law firm, she joins her longtime friend, former law school classmate and firm partner, Will Gardner, who is interested in rekindling their former relationship. Meanwhile, as her husband continues to serve his sentence under house arrest and plans a return to office with the help of a cunning image consultant, Alicia continues to struggle with creating a stable family life for her two children and transforming herself from embarrassed politician's wife to career woman.

Including all 23 absorbing episodes in a six-disc set, The Good Wife: The Second Season also stars Christine Baranski, Josh Charles, Emmy winner Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming, and Chris Noth. Special guest stars including Michael J. Fox, America Ferrera, Lili Tayor, and Anika Noni Rose also make appearances during the dramatic second season.

The Good Wife will air Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, starting with the third season premiere on Sunday, Sept. 25.
