The Lincoln Lawyer has won its case for a third season. Netflix has renewed the David E. Kelley legal drama for another round.
The series — which is based on the book series by author Michael Connelly — will have another 10 episodes. The next season will be based on the fifth Lincoln Lawyer novel, The Gods of Guilt.
The show follows Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) “an iconoclastic idealist, [who] 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.”
In addition to Garcia-Rulfo, Becki Newton (Lorna), Jazz Raycole (Izzy), Angus Sampson (Cisco) and Yaya DaCosta (Andrea Freemann), among others, will reprise their roles in season three.
One notable name not returning as a regular: Neve Campbell, who had a diminished role in the second season and whose character accepted a new job in a different city in the finale. Campbell’s character was not part of Connelly’s fifth book, though sources say the door is open for the character to return in future seasons.
The show’s second season premiered July 6 and, according to Netflix, reached the streamer’s Top 10 in 81 countries.
The project is from co-showrunners Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez, and executive producers Kelley, Humphrey, Connelly, Rodriguez, Ross Fineman, Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson.
“We’re thrilled to bring back The Lincoln Lawyer for a third season,” said Peter Friedlander, vp scripted series, Netflix U.S. and Canada. “Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez have taken us deeper into Mickey Haller’s world, building out characters and stories that have connected with our global audience, and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for everyone’s favorite lawyer. The show continues to top our global lists and it’s a testament to the work from a creative powerhouse team including Michael Connelly, David E. Kelly, Ross Fineman and our partners at A+E Studios.”
