Legal crime dramas have long been a favourite of Netflix fans the world over - from Suits to How To Get Away With Murder - and it looks like there's a new show joining that particular hall of fame: The Lincoln Lawyer.
Series one of the show dropped on Netflix in the UK on Friday 13th May, and jumped straight to the top of the streaming platform's top 10. The show focuses on defence attorney Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), as he works on the case of a man, Trevor Elliot (Christopher Gorman), accused of killing his wife and her boyfriend after finding out about their relationship.
The show's already got viewers talking, including about one particular cast member. And, naturally, fans are asking whether we'll get to see The Lincoln Lawyer season two. Here's what we know so far...
Has The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 been confirmed?
Yes! on 14th June 2022, Netflix revealed a second season of the show was officially coming. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will consist of another batch of 10 episodes and be based on the fourth book in the Lincoln Lawyer book series by Michael Connelly, The Fifth Witness. (Season one was based on the second book, The Brass Verdict.)
Who might star in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2?
When The Lincoln Lawyer season two does roll around, we'd expect some of S1's leading cast members to return. That'll hopefully include Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as lawyer Mickey Haller, plus Jazz Raycole as Izzy Letts. Then there's Mickey's ex-wife and now colleague Lorna (played by Becki Newton), as well as his other ex-wife Maggie McPherson (Neve Campbell. And, of course, Angus Sampson as Cisco.
We can also expect some new characters to be cast, as the fourth book is centred around a new case for Mickey. Perfect.
What might happen in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2?
The Amazon synopsis for the fourth book, which the second season is based on, reads:
"In tough times, crime is one of the few things that still pays, but even criminals are having to make cutbacks. So for defence lawyer Mickey Haller, most of his new business is not about keeping people out of jail; it's about keeping a roof over their heads as the foreclosure business is booming.
"Lisa Trammel has been a client of Mickey's for eight months, and so far he's stopped the bank from taking her house. But now the bank's CEO has been found beaten to death - and Lisa is about to be indicted for murder."
When is The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 expected to be released?
Sadly we haven't heard anything about an expected release date for the series. But it's a good job a second season has been confirmed, and as season one only just came out, we'd expect it to be 2023 at the earliest!
