The Lincoln Lawyer was a huge hit with Netflix viewers when it landed back in May 2022, rapidly rising to the top of streamer’s top 10 list within the first week and accumulating 260.53 million viewing hours as of 5th June.

It’s hardly surprising, then, that a second season of the hit crime drama has been renewed, with Manuel Garcia-Rulfo reprising his role as Mickey Haller.

Based on Michael Connelly’s book titled The Brass Verdict, the first season of The Lincoln Lawyer focuses on defence attorney Mickey Haller as he works on the case of a man called Trevor Elliot, who is accused of killing his wife and her boyfriend after uncovering their affair, and stars Neve Campbell and Jazz Raycol alongside Garcia-Rulfo.

Netflix announced the exciting news of a second-season renewal with a short clip of Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey, sat in the back of his car as he's driven away.

For season 2, fans are set to see an adaptation of the fourth book in Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer series – The Fifth Witness – which will focus mainly on the case of Mickey Haller defending a client who is accused of killing the banker she accuses of trying to take away her home.


The dramatic ending of the first season certainly paved the way for a second season, but what's likely to unfold in the next instalment?

Read on for everything you need to know about The Lincoln Lawyer season 2.
