The Good Fight has just confirmed the exit of actress Rose Leslie from the show.

The former Game of Thrones star, who plays the character of Maia Rindell on the CBS drama series, will not return for the upcoming fourth season.

Speaking on the Comic-Con panel in San Diego on Thursday (July 18), The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King (via TVLine) have confirmed the news, saying that the third season's finale acts as an official "sendoff" for Leslie's character.

In the finale, attorney Maia Randell headed to Washington DC to launch a new law company with Roland Blum (Michael Sheen).

This may not come as a surprise to some fans, as Leslie has teased her exit from the drama series back in April during a cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live alongside her husband Kit Harington.

Leslie expressed her concerns that Game of Thrones' ending could leave both of them without any source of income – which was a clear indication that she might soon be unemployed too.

"We didn't save anything," she said. "And you kept telling me, 'I'm the King of the North, we can order Uber Eats every night!'"

"Honey, don't worry, we'll be OK," Harrington replied. "I'll make my jewellery. And you… have your little songs."

There's no confirmation yet on when to expect the release of The Good Fight season 4.

The Good Fight airs on CBS All Access in the US and More4 in the UK.
