Is it really time to say goodbye to one of the beloved series from the legal drama genre that was created for television by David E. Kelley and developed by Ted Humphrey and that loyal fans have religiously binge-watched since its debut last year? If you have been tuned into streaming the show, then we know that many fans are wondering if the show will be renewed or if it has concluded for good with the second season.
This is a question that has started to spread like wildfire all over social media and needs to be answered rather quickly, especially for the fans who have spent so much of their own time watching the last two seasons. So, if you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place to know it all! For you, we’ve compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the future of this popular series.
Here’s everything we know about the renewal status of The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3.
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3: Is it renewed or canceled?
Let’s get straight to the point in order to clarify the renewal status of the series without delaying its reveal any further! Right now, we can assure the readers that there has been no official announcement from Netflix regarding the renewal of the show for a third season.
This is an unfortunate update, but one of the main reasons for the series not get an early renewal is the fact that is that The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 Part 2 just made its debut on Netflix with the remaining five episodes to complete the full rollout of the second season, which makes it impossible for the streaming platform to evaluate the overall reception before confirming its approval for additional seasons, as the network requires a proper time frame of at least a month or three to get a brief insight into the viewership, budget allocations, and production process, among other factors that can justify another season before such announcements are made public.
Hence, if the show is able to perform remarkably well by maintaining the overall position on Netflix’s top streaming catalog with increased viewership across various regions, then there is a high possibility that the network might decide to renew the show for a third season. Until then, the fans should know that the series renewal status is neither here nor there.
Moreover, the renewal decision will likely come down to whether or not the fans and the creators see if the material is worthy enough to justify another season. On a side note, we are optimistic that the series might get greenlit for a third season, as the second season seems to be heading its way to top the records set by the first season!
As of writing this, the second season holds the record of having 12,600,000 hours viewed, with the season ranking in the Netflix top 10 global list for the last four weeks, which is a great indication that the series is getting fairly good viewership, which has been accounted for by 3,000,000 views on Netflix so far. It is more likely to increase with the release of the remaining five episodes, and the fans will finally get to know how the season ended because, if you have streamed the show, then you’ll know that the overall plotline of this show is based on the books of Michael Connelly and the plot is far from being complete.
We would also like to highlight that this is just our guess that the next season might be approved, which can be changed as the future is always uncertain. Hence, we suggest that the readers should be patient and keep a close eye on the social media platforms to get all the details without missing out on any future updates. In the meantime, start binge-watching the first and second seasons, in case you haven’t already!
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3: If renewed, when will it be released?
If the renewal is still on the table, then there is a chance that it might get disclosed within the next few weeks or sometime around this fall season, as Netflix tends to take its time in order to properly evaluate the overall reception from critics and fans, along with viewership of the show, that will justify another season. Due to this, there is a high chance that the season’s renewal might take some time to be confirmed.
In the meantime, we suggest that the fans should stream the series if they want it to expand further and at least be turned into a trilogy, which will help Netflix to notice that the demand for the series hasn’t waned out, which is crucial to determining its fate. On the other hand, due to the ongoing 2023 WGA strike along with the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, there is a possibility that the third season, despite being renewed, might get delayed with its official release as the parties involved are the writers and actors who are protesting for fair compensation rights within the strike, which sadly haven’t reached any agreement due to which the majority of the production houses have stopped their work.
After all, it’s for the first time in 63 years that Hollywood has a double strike on its hands, and then there is no chance that the parties involved will stop protesting anytime soon!
On the bright side, after months of waiting, Hollywood’s striking writers and major studios have agreed to hold talks this Friday for the first time since their strike began over higher pay demands in May 2023. “We’ll be back in communication with you sometime after the meeting with further information,” the committee told its members in its note. So, the chances of the renewal and release date of the show being delayed further if the strikes gain more momentum and don’t reach a resolution within the next few weeks, especially after the meeting, are highly bound to happen.
On the other hand, for your consideration, we speculate that if the production commences sometime later this year, then the likely release window might be fixed for sometime around the summer of 2024! At the earliest, we expect to see a third season of The Lincoln Lawyer in Q2 of next year with the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET) on Netflix. The change in the release window depends on the duration of the strikes, as they will directly impact the screen for the three production stages because the creators surely want to deliver a good show.
So, these factors make one thing pretty much apparent: there is no way the third season will be premiering on Netflix anytime soon if it’s greenlit. Hence, if you want to receive information on the potential renewal and release date of The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3, then we urge the readers to enable Netflix’s social media notifications to get all the new updates.
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 Plot: If renewed, what to expect?
Right now, no details about the third season have been revealed, and everything related to its plot and characters is just pure speculation. As the creators might decide to follow the same route and build the story as a continuation for another season with a compelling arc that holds the theme from the prior episodes together without diverting the tale of Mickey Haller, a defense attorney in Los Angeles who works out of a chauffeur-driven Lincoln Navigator rather than an office.
Moreover, the first season of this beloved legal drama was adapted from Connelly’s second novel in the series, called The Brass Verdict, while the follow-up second season was adapted from the fourth, The Fifth Witness.
As we know that each season feels like a standalone story, which is a great sign for its future development, as there are seven books in The Lincoln Lawyer book series, which leaves enough source material for the creators to just pick up another book and adapt it for the next season! In conclusion, the chances of The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 happening are still on the table, and we’ll be shocked if it gets scrapped for some reason.
In addition to this, if you have started to stream the new season, then you’ll know that the next season will definitely pick up right where the second season left off! In the finale episode, “Bury Your Past,” which was directed by Ben Hernandez Bray and written by Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez, the viewers got to see that the defense rests and a verdict is in—but Mickey still has more to learn about Lisa. Moreover, Lorna and Cisco’s wedding plans hit another hiccup, due to which the plot of the season has been left on a potential cliffhanger that can be explored further, and makes one thing clear that the show’s future just might be safe, and more jam-packed entertainment is on the way!
We are hopeful that the creators will adapt any other remaining novel, which includes The Reversal, The Gods Of Guilt, The Law Of Innocence, and Connelly’s latest book, Resurrection Walk, as likely jumping-off points for another spectacular season, which will continue the plot in the best way possible for these characters that the fans have grown to love in just two seasons! At last, we’ll just have to wait and see what decision the creators will make to seal the fate of the show, which will be confirmed in a few weeks. *Finger’s Crossed*
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 Cast: Who will reprise their roles?
The main cast members who are speculated to return in the third season are as follows: Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, a criminal-defense lawyer and recovering addict; Adan James Carillo as young Mickey Haller; Neve Campbell as Maggie McPherson, Mickey’s first ex-wife-and-a-criminal prosecutor; Becki Newton as Lorna Crane, Mickey’s second ex-wife and his legal aide; Jazz Raycole as Izzy Letts, a former addict, and client of Mickey, now working as his personal driver; and Angus Sampson as Cisco, Mickey’s friend and go-to investigator and Lorna’s fiancé.
The guest stars are subject to change, just as they were during the first and second seasons. On the other hand, the new members who joined the second season can also return, which includes Lana Parrilla as Lisa Trammell, a chef accused of murdering a real estate developer; Yaya DaCosta as Andrea “Andy” Freemann, a formidable criminal prosecutor in Trammell’s case; Matt Angel as Henry Dahl, a true crime podcaster covering Trammell’s case; Angélica María as Elena, Mickey’s mother; and Douglas Bennett as Pete “Kaz” Kazinski, a member of the Road Saints Motorcycle Club.
Of course! There can be some new additions and removals from the cast due to cost-cutting or other varied factors, which ultimately depend on the plot of the third season, and details about them will be disclosed later once renewal is approved.
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 Episodes: How many will be there and where to stream?
If renewed, the next season is expected to be consistent with the official episode count and include at least 10 episodes with a minimum runtime of approximately 45 to 55 minutes that can be divided into two parts, just like the second season. We would like to highlight that the creators of the show can also increase the number if they want to expand further on the series and make a supersized season, which will be confirmed by the network later as the release date draws near.
If you want to receive more information on The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 on Netflix, the viewers may enable notifications on the streaming platform.
For now, we urge the readers to stream the first season to be up to date with all the plotlines, which are now available to be watched exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible with a wide range of membership options depending on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99 per month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49 per month, with no additional cost for any of their services.
The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 Official Trailer: Has it been released?
Unfortunately, the network has not yet released any new teasers for The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3, as the series hasn’t been renewed, which might get delayed approval due to the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike along with the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, which hasn’t come to a resolution yet. In the meantime, check out the official trailer for the second season to recall what transpired in the show so far, which has the following official synopsis:
“LA’s Hottest Defense Attorney is Back for Season 2! The Lincoln Lawyer, Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles. Based on the series of bestselling novels by renowned author Michael Connelly, the second season is based on the fourth book in The Lincoln Lawyer series, The Fifth Witness.”
