Based upon Michael Connelly’s book, The Brass Verdict, The Lincoln Lawyer is a legal drama featuring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, in the lead role of Mickey Haller. Released in May 2022, the story follows the life of Haller as a lawyer and an array of cases he is assigned after a mysterious murder of his contemporary, followed by Haller’s recovery from a tragic incident.
Ever since season one premiered on Netflix, it has garnered exponential popularity for its procedural setting, intricately connected with mystery, exuding lighthearted summer vibes. This explains the increasing viewership figures and also the consistency of the show’s position in Netflix’s Top 10 for multiple weeks.
That being said, the season 2 renewal was a no-brainer. Also based upon Michael Connelly’s work, The Fifth Witness, the second season will certainly feature Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the lead role.
For those unversed, The Lincoln Lawyer is created by David E. Kelley and here’s the official plotline of the series:
“Sidelined after an accident, hotshot Los Angeles lawyer Mickey Haller restarts his career – and his trademark Lincoln – when he takes on a murder case.”
When can we expect The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 to arrive on Netflix?
Although the second season is not premiering on the official streamer in January 2023, Netflix Life reports “that filming will wrap very soon.” As per the previous reports, the production for The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 took off in November 2022 and is expected to conclude sometime in March 2023.
Even though the first season was released in May, we don’t expect the second season to follow suit since the filming is wrapping in March. Once the production process is ended, the season will have to go through the post-production process, which normally takes up to six months. Consequently, we expect the second season to hit the Netflix library sometime in the fall or winter of this year.
Who are the expected cast members of The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2?
On October 26, 2022, Lana Parrilla was reported to be joining the cast of The Lincoln Lawyer season 2, along with Yana DaCosta, who is popular for her role as April Sexton in Chicago Med and Angela Vaughn in Fox’s Our Kind of People. In an interview with Deadline, Yaya disclosed that she will be reprising the recurring role of Andrea Freeman, who is described as “a cut-throat prosecutor and Mickey Haller’s undefeated courtroom rival, who is also a friend of his ex-wife Maggie.”
Apart from this, the following list includes all the expected cast members of The Lincoln Lawyer season 2:
- Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller
- Neve Campbell as Maggie McPherson (recurring)
- Becki Newton as Lorna
- Jazz Raycole as Izzy
- Angus Sampson as Cisco
- Krista Warner as Hayley Haller
What can we expect to happen in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2?
As previously mentioned, The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 is confirmed to be based on Connelley’s book, The Fifth Witness. In this book, we see Mickey defending the long-standing client Lisa Trammel, who has been accused of killing her husband. The significance of the plot lies in Mickey’s persuasion of a key witness to take the Fifth Amendment before giving his testimony. This alludes to the right of refusing to answer questions that can aid in further criminal proceedings.
