One of the most successful new Netflix shows of 2022 was the streamer’s adaptation of Michael Connelly’s Mickey Haller book series, The Lincoln Lawyer. Since its release in May 2022, fans of the hit series are looking forward to The Lincoln Lawyer season 2.
Because of its impressive viewership numbers, Netflix quickly renewed The Lincoln Lawyer for season 2. The follow-up season was announced in June 2022, not long after the premiere the month before.
The Lincoln Lawyer’s first season was based on The Brass Verdict, the second novel in the Mickey Haller series. Along with Netflix’s announcement of the second season, the streamer revealed the upcoming season would be based upon the fourth both, titled The Fifth Witness.
Unfortunately, the wait for the follow-up season continues, as season 2 won’t premiere on Netflix in November 2022. But we hadn’t expected the season to drop so soon with filming just getting underway. Here’s an updated release timeframe, as well as new casting announcements!
The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 latest updates November 2022
On Oct. 31, author Michael Connelly shared a photo on Instagram from the set of The Lincoln Lawyer season 2. Connelly announced that filming had begun on the new season, and as reported by What’s on Netflix, production is expected to wrap on March 23, 2023.
Traditionally, post-production for Netflix shows can take up to six months, which could bring the release date well into September 2023. One thing’s for sure, The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 won’t drop in May 2023, but we could see the season arrive by late August or well into September.
As long of a wait as that might be, season 2 will be worth the wait with Once Upon a Time star Lana Parrilla and Chicago Med alum Yaya DaCosta joining the series in recurring roles. Even though we’ll be seeing less of Neve Campbell’s Maggie, she’ll still be around, too.
