Is Netflix going to get the rights to the second season of Lincoln Lawyer? Fans who have already watched the first season are eager to know this.
Despite not being an official release, season 2 seems to be on its way. The highly anticipated series premiered a few days ago and has shot straight to the top of Netflix’s Top 10 list in the United States.
Executive produced by David E. Kelley, based on Michael Connelly’s novels about attorney Mickey Haller and premiering May 13, the 10-episode season received 884 million minutes of viewership for May 9-15.
Ozark was the most watched TV show for the third week in a row, but other shows also had high viewership. Both Ozark and Little Women were two of the most viewed TV shows this week.
Season 1 took cues from acclaimed author Michael Connelly’s second novel, “Brass Verdict.” Bestselling author as well as recovering drug addict, Mickey Haller is portrayed by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Neve Campbell). With a court-ordered addiction rehabilitation program in the works and an influx of clients after his co-worker was killed, Mickey Haller now works on the cases in his Lincoln Town Car.
The Lincoln lawyer Season 2 Release Date
At this point, analyzing the ratings for Lincoln Lawyer, we would be very surprised if it is not renewed with a season 2. It has been in the top ten since its release and here exist plenty of material from Connelly’s six books in which Mickey Haller emerges as a central character.
The Lincoln Lawyer season 1 started on the streaming platform on May 13th 2022, so if a second series makes an appearance at some point in the future it will likely take place in the spring or summer of 2023.
If renewal for season two comes within the next two months, production will resume this year, and a release date for season two would likely take place in late 2023 or early 2024.
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 Cast
If The Lincoln Lawyer is a success, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will probably reprise his role as Mickey Haller in the second movie of the franchise.
He will be accompanied by his assistant/driver, Izzy Letts, who is also a recovering addict.
Another significant pair of women in his life are his first wife Maggie McPherson, portrayed by Neve Campbell, and his second wife who is now an investigator Lorna.
