Has The Lincoln Lawyer been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Lincoln Lawyer is certainly not going to ignite the law drama world but Netflix’s 10 episode romp certainly has enough in the tank to make for an enjoyable watch.

Despite wrapping everything up nicely, a teaser for a potential second season may leave you wondering if a sequel has been green-lit.


What is The Lincoln Lawyer about?

Mickey Haller is a brilliant defence lawyer who has had a year off thanks to a bad accident and an addiction to pills.

When his old colleague Jerry is shot dead in a parking lot, Mickey is surprised to learn Jerry has handed over the keys to his law practice (and all the subsequent cases he was working on) to him.

The most notable case here is one involving a hotshot game developer called Trevor Elliott. Accused of killing his wife and her boyfriend, Mickey scrambles to learn all the details of this murder, especially when it’s revealed that those same shadowy forces that killed Jerry could be coming for him too.

We do have extensive coverage for The Lincoln Lawyer across the site, including recaps for all episodes and a full season review. Feel free to check those out HERE!


Has The Lincoln Lawyer been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, The Lincoln Lawyer has not been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, that could well change.

Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, The Lincoln Lawyer has had a pretty mixed reception from critics but generally favourable from audiences.

Based on the ending and the reception from audiences, we’re going out on a limb and predicting that The Lincoln Lawyer will be renewed for a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. The conclusion does open things up for a follow-up though.

If this one is renewed, expect the story to add more context to Cisco’s deal with the bikers, Lorna’s law school drama and the identity of that shadowy man with the tattoo on his forearm.

We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

  21. Excellent series . Actors, characters, plot, production quality. Every episode held my interest, and when it ended, I checked immediately to see if there is a Season 2. When I first saw David Kelly’s name attached to it in the opening credits, i expected the best, and season 1fully lived up to my hopes. I recommended it to a couple discerning friends who watched immediately & had my same reaction .
    This is a winner that merits additional seasons.
