CBS' The Good Wife will say farewell to Archie Panjabi this season.

"Archie is an Emmy Award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so. Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own,"20th exec vp casting Sharon Klein said. "We couldn't be happier that it will be with us."The Emmy-winning actress, whose contract expires at the end of season six, has signed a development/holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. 20th's plan calls for the actress behind Kalinda Sharma to star in a drama pilot for the studio in the spring.

Added Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King: "Archie is an amazing actress who helped build Kalinda from the ground up as an enigmatic, powerful and sexy character. It's been a pleasure to write for her, and we'll be sad to see her go; but we still have her for the rest of season six, so let's not exhaust our goodbyes yet. We look forward to meeting all the wonderful new characters Archie brings to the screen. But either way, we're keeping the boots." 

Panjabi, a regular since season one, has earned three Emmy nominations (including one win) and a Golden Globe nom for her role on the Good Wife
