Tv Season Info

This drama follows the professional and personal life of Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, a brilliant CIA analyst-turned-college professor who returns to Washington, D.C., as a favor to the president, whom she considers a friend. While he values Elizabeth's frankness and how she confidently handles the job on her own terms, those qualities aren't always appreciated, especially by other members of the White House staff.

Critic Reviews for Madam Secretary: Season 5

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

While an Emmy may not be forthcoming, Clinton acquits herself well in this fifth-season launch of a hit that wants -- and occasionally has -- some of that ol' West Wing mojo.

Top Critic

Cameos from Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton -- and a terrific guest appearance by Linda Lavin...get the fifth season of the political drama off to a strong start.

October 8, 2018 | Full Review…

What a way to kick things off. As if having not one, not two, but three former Secretaries of State on Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 1 wasn't enough, the cast and writers delivered a hell of a story.
