Adapting popular novel series carries as much risk as it has potential. However, Netflix has successfully pulled this off with the first season of The Lincoln Lawyer, which premiered earlier this month. The show, based on Michael Connelly’s The Brass Verdict, has been well received by fans and critics alike. It’s no surprise then that a large number of fans are eagerly awaiting his return with The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2.
Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer, created by David E. Kelley, is an American legal crime drama series. Based on Micheal Connelly’s book, The Lincoln Lawyers follows crime lawyer Micheal Haller as he works on complicated cases in his signature Lincoln.
When is The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 Coming?
The first season of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer premiered on the streaming giant on May 13, 2022. Moreover, for the fans waiting for the show’s renewal, we don’t have any news yet. Neither Netflix nor the showrunners have yet made an official announcement about the show’s renewal for season 2 of The Lincoln Advocate.
But this is no reason for fans to be alarmed, as it is very typical for Netflix to wait a few months and see how a show performs in viewership before it is green-lighted for more seasons. Furthermore, the series is based on the famous novel series by Michael Connelly. So there is no shortage of source material to adapt from.
At the same time, another series based on Conelly’s work Bosch ran for seven seasons before continuing as Bosch Legacy. So things are looking too rosy for season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer. But we will have to wait for an official announcement for a clearer picture.
What Happens in Season 2 of Lincoln’s Lawyer?
The first season of the Lincoln Lawyer ended with Mickey’s win in the cast of Trevor Elliott. However, he soon realized that his client was, in fact, guilty. Mickey discovered that evil Judge Mary Holder had a hand in Jerry’s murder. He then sent her to the authorities. The season ended with Mickey finally making up for some of his past mistakes. Mickey secured the release of a former client, Jesus Menendez, who had been wrongly convicted.
When the show returns with season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer, the story will continue from where the first season ended. We will see Mickey try another complicated case that will put him in some tough situations. On the other hand, there will also be several minor and minor cases throughout the season. Meanwhile, the second season could also focus on Mickey’s personal life and how he tried to get things back on track with his ex-wife Maggie.
How does Mickey differ from the books?
One of the main differences between the book and the series is that in The Brass Verdict, Haller’s father died when he was only five years old. However, in the Netflix series, Haller is much older and throughout the first season there were several flashbacks from his childhood that surprised the two and forged a bond. Plus, we saw Elliott Gould, Haller’s father’s former partner, act as a mentor figure for him.
While there are a few differences between Netflix’s shows and the book, the explanations explain the changes. Changes to the story and characters are necessary given the time difference between the book. Furthermore, many of the adjustments improve the relationships between the characters, making the series more emotionally appealing.
The cast of Netflix’s ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the lead role of Mickey Haller and Neve Campbell who play Maggie McPherson. Additionally, Becki Newton stars as Lorna. Angus Sampson as Cisco. Jazz Raycole as Izzy Letts and Christopher Gorham as Trevor Elliott.
The show also features Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine as Raymond Griggs and Lamont Thompson in the role of Judge James Stanton. And Krista Warner plays Hayley Haller. When the show is relaunched for The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2, we’ll see the return of all the main members in their respective roles. At the same time, there may also be some new faces in the second season.
