Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes and will be based on the fifth book in The Lincoln Lawyer series by Michael Connelly, The Gods of Guilt.
Exclusive first look images can be found below with a description to follow from co-showrunners and executive producers Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez.
“While Season 3 of The Lincoln Lawyer is based on Michael Connelly’s novel The Gods of Guilt, we decided that a fun (and poignant) way to come into the season would be via a flashback sequence that gave us some insight into how Mickey Haller became Mickey Haller — not just the brilliant criminal defense lawyer but the husband, the father, and the man that he would come to be,” shared Humphrey and Rodriguez in a statement to Deadline.
“There is no comparable flashback in the book, so we devised something that would also serve as a fitting introduction to the story of the season, both on a plot level but also emotionally. These images, of a young Mickey finishing up surfing before a life-changing day at work, as well as cuddling on the couch with his wife Maggie after putting their young daughter Hayley to bed, are from a pair of these flashback scenes that bookend the first episode and propel us into the rest of Season 3,” they added.
Season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer premiered on July 6, 2023, and quickly climbed up the Netflix Global Top 10 with a cumulative 40 million views as of August 29, 2023, reaching the Top 10 in 81 countries.
In addition to Humphrey and Rodriguez, executive producers also include David E. Kelley, Michael Connelly, Ross Fineman, Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson. Kelley created the series for TV and was developed by Humphrey. A+E Studios is the studio.
Seasons 1 and 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer are available to stream now via Netflix.
