Lincoln Lawyer’ Season 3 Details Revealed

Renewing a popular television series can often end in spectacular results – as was seen in the case of ‘The Lincoln Lawyer.’ Initially brought to life in a 2011 film starring Matthew McConaughey, the captivating leading character is derived from Michael Connelly’s book series. Hit figures in this book series also include Detective Harry Bosch, who is making quite a splash in his own universe on Amazon. However, it’s important to note that despite both characters existing in the same literary universe, there is no connection between Netflix’s ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ and Amazon’s Bosch series.

The third season of ‘The Lincoln Lawyer,’ starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, was filmed over several months despite major changes in the show’s format. Originally, Mickey’s character was known for running his law practice from his car’s backseat, but in the Netflix series, he now operates from an office. Let’s dive into what to anticipate in the future.

What’s Expected in the Third Season

In this season widely anticipated by fans, elements from Connelly’s fifth Lincoln Lawyer book titled ‘The Gods of Guilt’ will be introduced. An intriguing plot revolves around Mickey receiving a cryptic text message that reads “187,” the penal code for murder in California. The murder victim is an ex-client and an ex-prostitute, who unfortunately slipped back into old habits, despite Micky’s attempts to help her escape.

According to the book, Mickey’s past plays a significant role in the situation, leaving his fate hanging in the balance. This storyline aligns with the end of the second season, where Mickey learns about Glory Days’ death and plunges headfirst into what Ross Fineman, the executive producer, described as “the toughest case he’s ever had.”

The series will also feature backstories through flashbacks to provide deeper insights into Mickey’s life and his reaction to Glory Days’ death.

Returning and New Members of the Cast

While Manuel Garcia-Rulfo continues his stellar representation of Mickey Haller, there are some new additions to the team. The updated cast roster features Michael Kirby as DEA Agent James De Marco, Wolé Parks as David Lyons, the murder defendant, and Maisie Klompus as witness Annabeth Stephens. Other new faces include Allyn Moriyon, John Pirruccello, Merrin Dungey, and Philip Anthony-Rodriguez.

Jon Tenney will reprise his role as Mickey Haller, Sr, and Neve Campbell will return as Maggie, despite her character having moved to another city in the story. Returning as well include Becki Newton as Lorna, Yaya DaCosta as Andrea, Jazz Raycole as Izzy, and Angus Sampson as Cisco.

When to Expect the Third Season

Considering the speed at which Netflix released the first and the second season, fans eagerly anticipate the third season to premiere in late 2024.

Upcoming Trailer

For now, fans will have to be satisfied with an announcement teaser. However, they won’t have to wait much longer for actual footage.
