Deadline has just reported that actress, Wanda Sykes has been tapped for a recurring role in the upcoming fifth season of The Good Fight on Paramount+.

Sykes will portray Allegra Durado – an attorney who stepped away from the law for ten years to finish her white whale of a book.

In an official statement, Robert and Michelle King said, “Our holy grail of casting is always to find dramatic actors who can also deliver the comedy, and that pretty much defines Wanda.” Adding, “We couldn’t feel more fortunate to be working with her.”

Sykes joins fellow actor-comedian Wayne Brady who also is joining Season 5 of The Good Fight as a recurring.
