Legal crime dramas have long been a favorite of Netflix subscribers around the world, from Suits to How To Get Away With Murder, and it appears that The Lincoln Lawyer will soon be joining that hall of fame.
The show’s first season premiered on Netflix in the UK on May 13 and immediately climbed to the top of the list of the top 10. The case of Trevor Elliot (Christopher Gorman), a man accused of killing his wife and her boyfriend after learning of their relationship, is the subject of the show, which centers on defense lawyer Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo).
Viewers are already chatting about the show and one particular cast member in particular. Fans are naturally curious about the possibility of a second season of The Lincoln Lawyer. Here is what we currently know:
Has a second season of The Lincoln Lawyer been announced?
Yes, Netflix officially announced the show’s second season on June 14, 2022. The Fifth Witness, the fourth book in Michael Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer book series, will serve as the basis for a new batch of ten episodes, per The Hollywood Reporter. (The Brass Verdict, the second book, served as the basis for season one.)
Who might appear in Season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer?
We anticipate several of the main cast from The Lincoln Lawyer season one to return when it does. That should feature Jazz Raycole as Izzy Letts and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as attorney Mickey Haller. Also included are Mickey’s other ex-wives, Maggie McPherson (Neve Campbell) and his ex-wife Lorna, who is currently a work colleague and is portrayed by Becki Newton. And of course Cisco, played by Angus Sampson.
As the fourth book centers on a fresh case for Mickey, we may also anticipate the casting of a few new characters. Perfect.
What might occur in season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer?
The second season is based on the fourth novel, which has the following synopsis on Amazon:
“Crime is one of the few things that still pays in hard times, but even criminals are forced to make budget cuts. In light of the expanding foreclosure market, Mickey Haller, a defense attorney, finds that the majority of his recent work is focused on helping clients maintain their homes rather than keeping them out of jail.
“Mickey has been Lisa Trammel’s client for eight months, and thus far he has prevented the bank from seizing her home. But now that the bank’s CEO has been discovered dead after being battered, Lisa is going to face a murder charge.
When will the second season of The Lincoln Lawyer be available?
Sadly, we haven’t received any information regarding the series’ anticipated premiere date. But because season one has only recently premiered, it’s a good thing a second season has been confirmed. At the earliest, that would be in 2023.
