One of the major 2022 TV premieres, The Lincoln Lawyer quickly received a renewal thanks to a strong showing in the Netflix top 10. Here is all we currently know about The Lincoln Lawyer’s impending second season on Netflix, including a projected premiere date, production dates, and more. On May 13, 2022, the first season of the show became available on Netflix worldwide. It happened barely 18 months after Netflix decided to buy up the project, which had previously been in production at ViacomCBS (now Paramount), which finally decided against it.
On June 14th, Netflix announced that we would return to sunny Los Angeles. Dailyn Rodriguez, famed for Queen of the South, joined the show as co-showrunner alongside Ted Humphrey, it was revealed along with the season 2 announcement (who was the sole showrunner for season 1). There will be 10 brand-new episodes in Season 2.
What about the cast and crew?
As Mickey Haller, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will return to the scene. There will also be comebacks from Neve Campbell (Maggie McPherson), Becki Newton (Lorna), Jazz Raycole (Izzy), and Angus Sampson (Cisco). Campbell will return, although in a lesser capacity, as will be covered below.
When will it return on Netflix?
Now that production on the series is set to begin on October 31st, 2022, we can reveal that filming will once more take place in Los Angeles. The scheduled end date for filming, which will last over six months, is March 23, 2023. Season 2’s production timeline is a little bit longer than season 1’s, although that is probably because it coincides with several holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas).
What does the release date entail? Given that we know it takes months for post-production and localization to finish the series, we don’t anticipate the show to return until at least summer 2023, with a fall 2023 release date being more plausible.
What about the plot?
Neve Campbell was a series regular on The Lincoln Lawyer in season 1, and while she will return for season 2, she will do so as a “recurring guest star.” As a result, the celebrity will appear less frequently in the second season. The announcement of Campbell’s upcoming starring role in the new ABC drama Avalon coincided with the news. David E. Kelley is the driving force behind that programme, just like The Lincoln Lawyer.
