It seems like Michael J. Fox's character will trying to take Will's place at Lockhart/Gardner in season 5 of The Good Wife. In other news, Matthew Goode has been promoted to series regular.

Julianna Margulies Struggled to Hold Back Tears While Filming Alicia's Reaction to Will's Death?

Goode guest starred as Finn Polmar in the last episode. Polmar was Will's opponent in court where the firing that claimed Will's life took place. As the show lost one of its main leads they might need new characters to help fill the void and Goode will hopefully play effective distraction.

Judging by a sneak peek at the rest of season 5 it seems like Louis Canning, played by Michael J. Fox, will be nominated to take Will's place at Lockhart/Gardner.

Alicia to Divorce Peter After Will's Death?  

After the shocking episode, Dramatics, Your Honor, ended, CBS followed it up with a brief look at what to expect from the rest of the season. While mostly Will's close friends were seen grieving the preview also hinted at a new development. Seems like Diane hires Louis Canning to take Will's place at LG and everything seems to going out of control. As Canning steps in he also acts a bit douchey with some of the people who are meant to be working for him. In one scene he is seen asking Kalinda to do something for him and suggests that he is the "new Will" and it is her job to be serving her, at which point she hurls an object his way -- while telling him that she served Will not him -- and storms out of the room.

The preview for the next episode, The Last Call, of The Good Wife features a touching farewell to Will featuring flashbacks with Alicia, Diane and Kalinda.
