Creators Robert and Michelle King also echoed Jumbo's sentiments.
"We've loved every moment of working with Cush for the last five years and everyone in 'The Good Fight' universe will miss her terribly. "Given the pandemic-forced premature ending of season 4, it's our hope that Cush will be able to return when we resume filming season 5 in order to give Lucca a proper send-off," they said.
