Great news, The Lincoln Lawyer fans — Netflix has renewed this popular legal drama for a third season. According to Deadline, the second season of the series, based on the books by Michael Connelly, was successful enough to garner global attention. So, the show is set to return with 10 new episodes, promising to deliver another round of riveting legal cases, intense courtroom drama, and intriguing character dynamics.

Suits isn’t the only hit legal series on Netflix, as The Lincoln Lawyer is coming back for another season.

The upcoming season will draw inspiration from Connelly’s fifth book in The Lincoln Lawyer series, The Gods of Guilt, and is poised to delve even deeper into the complex world of criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller, portrayed by the talented Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.

The Lincoln Lawyer stands out for its portrayal of Mickey Haller, a legal maverick who operates his law practice from the back seat of his Lincoln car. This unorthodox approach adds a layer of unconventional charm to the character, setting the stage for a series of legal battles that traverse the sprawling cityscape of Los Angeles. With the upcoming season based on The Gods of Guilt, viewers can expect Haller to confront even more morally challenging cases that push the boundaries of his ideals and ethics.

Receiving a series renewal at a time when even some of the most popular shows are getting canceled is a testament to the show’s growing popularity and its ability to engage viewers across diverse geographical and cultural backgrounds.

One of the key factors contributing to The Lincoln Lawyer’s appeal is its ensemble cast. Returning to reprise their roles are Becki Newton as Lorna, Jazz Raycole as Izzy, Angus Sampson as Cisco, and Yaya DaCosta as Andrea Freeman.
