Fans of "The Good Wife" just got the biggest surprise of the series -- in the middle of the Super Bowl.
The good news is the show is returning next week. The bad news… well. There are only nine more episodes to go. Ever.
Fans learned the news during a dramatic Super Bowl commercial spot on Sunday, and CBS afterwards confirmed the show's cancellation in a press release
"Being a part of 'The Good Wife' has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career," said series star Julianna Margulies. "As we close the book on our beloved show, I am humbled and grateful to know that together, we created and were a part of something truly remarkable," she added.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to express their feelings over the announcement.
"The Good Wife's" executive producers and co-creators Robert and Michelle King said they are looking forward to using the seventh and final season to "bring Alicia's story to its natural conclusion."
