The agreement also sees Amazon taking streaming rights for selected territories outside the U.S. to seasons of other hit CBS series, including “The Good Wife,” “Blue Bloods,” “Hawaii Five-0” and “NCIS.”

Armando Nuñez, president and CEO of CBS Studios International, said: “This marks another unique example of how we can window and monetize our growing slate of CBS programming for clients and audiences around the world.”

The first season of “The Good Fight” premiered on CBS in February 2017 with remaining episodes on CBS All Access. It sees Christine Baranski reprise her six-time Emmy-nominated role as Diane Lockhart from “The Good Wife.” Cush Jumbo, who joined “The Good Wife” in its final season in 2016, and Rose Leslie co-star. The second season will premiere in the U.S. on CBS All Access on March 4.
