Lincoln Lawyer is a newbie into a whole suit of Netflix fan favorites in the same genre like How to Get Away With Murder and Suits. The first season was released on the 13th of May in the UK and is currently already a speedy way up on the top 10. The story is about an attorney named Mickey Haller, played by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, working on the case of Trevor Elliot, played by Christopher Gorman, who has been accused of killing his wife and the man she had an affair with on finding out.
As of now we don’t have a confirmation for the second season. But don’t lose heart. The series is based on a book series called “Lincoln Lawyer” by Michael Connelly, and there’s a lot more story to be screened. The series consists of six books so there’s no deprivation of content.
If Netflix does choose to revive a season 2, we would hope to see Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as the lead playing Mickey again, and also Izzy Letts played by Jazz Raycole. Ideally both of Mickey’s ex-wives, played by Neve Campbell and Becki Newton should also return for the second season. They all put up a splendid performance and it would be absolutely amazing to have them back.
With the first season focusing on the book, “The Brass Verdict”, which is not the first book. And with the 2011 movie starring Matthew McConaughey, telling us the story in the first book, it would be expected that the second season would lean into the third book, “The Reversal”.
The first season consisted of 10 total episodes, with a runtime anywhere from 46 to 56 minutes long, focusing on all ten chapters. It’s the story of Mickey Haller, a defense attorney, who had parted ways with his work for a while due to an addiction to painkillers, returning to work and practicing law following the murder of his former partner Jerry Vincent, who left his practice to Mickey. But before Mickey can start accepting Jerry’s clients, he needs the approval of Judge Mary Holder. He takes on large and small cases to this end, while on the side, trying to solve the mysterious murder of Jerry, from the backseat of his Lincoln, hence the name.
What To Expect
Now with the end of season 1 there are still a lot of questions left unanswered. Most notably, Cisco’s new arrangements to help him pay off his debts to the Road Saints and Lorna getting into the world of law and taking her steps into attending law school. We also see a mysterious figure just before the credits. We can theorize all we want on this, but the fact is the end has been set up for a reboot to the second season which should answer these questions.
The second season we would expect to have the same if not a few more episodes averaging the same view times and released on Netflix on a weekly basis. Lincoln Lawyer is a great show and we would all love to see him continue his journey as a defense attorney.
