Netflix’s popular show The Lincoln Lawyer is finally back. Based on books by Michael Connelly (also known for creating Detective Bosch, another character who’s received a television adaptation), The Lincoln Lawyer follows a Los Angeles defense attorney who often works out of a Lincoln Navigator, equipped with a chaffeur. The show stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as defense attorney Mickey Haller, alongside Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, and others.
In Season 1, a lawyer is shot dead and his briefcase is stolen. Defense attorney Mickey Haller is given all of the late lawyer’s cases, and is tasked with seeing through any cases his colleague had left, while also trying to solve the man’s murder.
After a well-received Season 1, The Lincoln Lawyer is officially back for a two-part Season 2. And with a new season comes brand new cases and a brand new supporting cast. In Season 2, Haller takes on the case of a chef who is accused of murdering a real estate developer. In addition to the new defendant, the show also adds a podcaster (Matt Angel) interested in the case, a determined criminal prosecutor (Yaya DaCosta), and Mickey’s mother, played by Angélica María.
