The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 release date speculation, cast, and news

We love the drama of a TV court room, so we can't wait for Netflix to scratch that itch again with The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 release date.

There aren’t many things more dramatic to see on screen than a court room. We want to stay well away from them in real life, but from the safety of our Netflix account? Yes please. With that in mind, we can’t wait for The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 release date. All the tension of a court room without the need to step into the dock. Perfection.

The Lincoln Lawyer has become something of a sleeper hit for Netflix and there’s plenty of story left to tell from the Michael Connelly books. So let’s get excited to reunite with The Lincoln Lawyer cast and delve back into the world of Mickey and his friends inside and outside the legal world. This has become one of the best Netflix series around, so get out your fancy fountain pens and prepare to take some notes.

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 release date speculation

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will premiere in summer 2024 if it follows the usual release pattern. It’s possible that the Hollywood strikes could cause a delay.

Peter Friedlander, VP of scripted series for Netflix US and Canada made the renewal announcement in August 2023, saying that The Lincoln Lawyer still tops global Netflix lists.

When you put it that way, Mickey Haller was always going to be back for more. The 2023 Writers Strike has now come to an end, so we’re getting excited at the prospect of getting some updates on the future of these characters. We just need the studios to get the Actors Strike resolved too so that the stars can get back on set.

Because of the modest budget and the good performance of the latest episodes (during July 2023, The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 earned 8.3 million total views and 35.3 million hours), the renewal is no surprise. When Netflix finds one of the best TV series on its platform, it definitely wants to make more.

Who’s in The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 cast?

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will bring back the main cast members, including Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in the lead role. However, we know that Neve Campbell won’t be back this time around.

Along with the season 3 renewal, the cast list was confirmed. Campbell’s Maggie will sit this out after her character accepted a new job offer at the end of the last season. But this may not be the end of her character, with rumors abounding that she might still make a return.

Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will, of course, be back in those snappy suits as Mickey Haller, with Becki Newton again playing his ex-wife and legal aide Lorna. Of course, we’ll also get some new faces for season 3, and we’ll tell you about them as soon as we get the news from Netflix.

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 cast list:

  • Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller
  • Becki Newton as Lorna
  • Jazz Raycole as Izzy
  • Angus Sampson as Cisco
  • Krista Warner as Hayley Haller
  • Yaya DaCosta as Andrea
  • Matt Angel as Henry
  • Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine as Detective Raymond Griggs
  • Elliott Gould as Legal Siegal
  • Fiona Rene as Glory Days/Gloria Dayton

What is The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 about?

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will adapt the book The Gods of Guilt, which covers the murder of a former client of Mickey’s.

In The Gods of Guilt, Mickey gets a panicked text about a murder. When he learns the victim was a former client, he is haunted by the past and prepares to put all his skills to the test working the case.

The body at the end of season 2’s finale? That’s Glory Days, the former client and sex worker who had been trying to turn her life around. We’re right on track for this adaptation, then.

How many seasons of The Lincoln Lawyer will there be?

There are seven books in the Mickey Haller series, so we could be in for seven seasons of The Lincoln Lawyer if we’re very lucky.

The first season of the show adapted The Brass Verdict, skipping the first book – even though it gives the show its title – while season two followed the story of fourth book The Fifth Witness. So while there’s a maximum of seven adaptations on the table, we can’t see the show going back to that first book.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that Netflix could throw aside Connelly’s books completely and start telling original Mickey Haller stories. It worked for James Bond, after all.

Is there a The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 trailer?

We won’t get a trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 until mid-2024 due to delays after the Hollywood strikes.

Delayed production means delayed trailers, other than a very brief announcement video. If nothing else, it means we get a good luck at the beautiful city of LA and some snappy suits. What more do you want?

Where can I watch The Lincoln Lawyer season 3?

Season 3 of The Lincoln Lawyer will stream on Netflix, just like the first two seasons.

The Lincoln Lawyer is a Netflix original, so unless it’s canceled and bought by another network, it’ll continue to be released there. We expect one of the best streaming services around to cling tightly to this successful format for as long as possible.

How many episodes will be in The Lincoln Lawyer season 3?

The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will have ten episodes, just like the first two seasons.

There’s no reason for Netflix to break a formula that’s working so beautifully. Ten episodes is the perfect length to binge over a lazy weekend, after all.
