Who’s in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 cast? The twist and turns throughout season 1, and now season 2, has had viewers hooked. In its first full week of streaming, it was Netflix’s most-watched English-language series globally, with over 108 million viewing hours.

What is The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 about?

While season 1 of The Lincoln Lawyer was based on ‘The Brass Verdict’, season 2 is based on ‘The Fifth Witness.’ Mickey is called upon to defend long-standing client Lisa Trammel, who has been accused of murdering her husband.

The season ended with a cliffhanger that involved the man with the tattoo on his arm, but this arc was quickly wrapped up within two episodes when it turned out that the killer was Mickey’s original client from the first episode, Russell.

As season 2 progresses, he and his new client Lisa develop a relationship, things quickly get complicated. Throughout, we’re caused to question whether Lisa is actually guilty as new evidence comes to light. The biggest quandary comes when it’s discovered that there was blood from the victim on her gardening gloves. Literal blood on her hands.

Ultimately, the judge decided to progress the case towards a proper trial with a jury. Meanwhile, Mickey was still being pestered by Henry, a podcaster who was documenting the case. Although Mickey as Lisa’s lawyer has final say on the rights to her life story, Henry still goes ahead and publishes after stealing Mickey’s contract. (Looks like Mickey will have to get over his fear of digitized paperwork after this.)

Of course, Mickey went into season 2 part 2 heavily injured after being attacked by two unknown assailants, so things were off to a rough start for him there. But he had to proceed with Lisa’s trial, so there’s no rest for the weary.

In the end, the trial is won and the jury declares Lisa not guilty after some clever work from Mickey. But, of course, it later transpires that Lisa is actually guilty. Classic. Thankfully, Mickey is able to get her arrested for good. The season ends with Mickey getting his new case: a man named Julian Lacosse, who was accused of murder. When Mickey goes to look at the body of the deceased, he discovers that it’s Gloria Dayton, a repeat client of his.

When was The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 release date?

The first five episodes of season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer premiered on Netflix on July 6, 2023, with the final episodes having followed on August 3, 2023.

The last five episodes of season 2 were held back to release after a wait, similar to the likes of Stranger Things season 4 and the Outlander season 7 release schedule. This seems to be a continuing trend for TV shows nowadays. It makes sense, since it still allows audiences to binge to a certain extent, but still manages to create hype within the gap.
