The Lincoln Lawyer was a huge hit for Netflix when it was released in May 2022.

Netflix reported that fans viewed more than 260.53 million hours of the show which reached the Top 10 in 90 countries.

Based on the character Mickey Haller, from the Michael Connelly books, The Lincoln Lawyer followed the idealistic lawyer as he returned to work following his recovery from a surfing accident.

The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 Release Date

Thankfully the drama of Mickey Haller's life didn't end with one season. He recently returned to fight the good fight, defending Lisa Trammell who was accused of murder.

Again, it was another huge win for Netflix who split the season into 2 parts, almost guaranteeing that it was in the top 10 around the world for over a month.

The great news is that The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 has been given the thumbs up! Yes, it's official Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will be back as Micky Haller to take on another major case.

However, before you get too excited, it doesn't look like we'll get it in 2024. In fact, when Netflix released their slate of shows for this year, The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 was not on it.

Filming was pushed back becuase of the strikes in the US in 2023 and was only scheduled to begin in January 2024.

So with no exact date, we must wait until closer to 2025 to see Mickey Haller back in action.

If you haven't already watched the first two seasons, here's a quick summary of what happened…

The Lincoln Lawyer Season 1 Recap

Mickey Haller is a decent lawyer but one who struggled with pain killer addiction following an accident.

Back and clean, he is trying to grow his business when a fellow defence attorney, Jerry Vincent, is murdered, leaving his thriving practice to Haller.

With that new workload comes a huge murder trial. Trevor Elliott is a tech genius accused of murdering his wife and her lover and it's up to Haller and his team to prove him innocent.

But all does not run smooth when Elliott refuses a continuance in the trial leaving Haller with almost no time to prep for the trial.

Throw in his other clients, an ex-wife who he still loves and expectations from his assistant Lorna and PI Cisco and Mickey Haller is soon spinning more plates than he can handle.

The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 – Recap

We left Mickey Haller after another moral dilemma that saw him successfully defend Lisa Tramell of a recent murder charge only to discover that she probably killed her husband years earlier.

During the trial, he made a few enemies, not least of which was Alex Grant. Grant is a successful developer whose business was ruined by Haller and it looks like he wants revenge!

We also ended season 2 with Haller being asked to defend a new client, Julian La Cosse. La Cosse has been arrested for the murder of a woman who, it turns out, is actually Gloria Dayton aka Glory Days.

It was a doozy of a cliffhanger and definitely left the door open for The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 – so let's just hope we get it!

The Lincoln Lawyer Season 3 – What Will Happen?

On the basis of how the second season ended, we know that season 3 will be based on the Michael Connolly novel, The Gods of Guilt (2013).

The book follows Haller as he learns that the victim was his own former client Glory Days, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path.

He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, Mickey must work tirelessly and bring all his skill to bear on a case that could mean his ultimate redemption or proof of his ultimate guilt.

Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes with Becki Newton (Lorna), Jazz Raycole (Izzy), Angus Sampson (Cisco) and Yaya DaCosta (Andrea Freemann), among others, reprising their roles.

How Many Episodes Of The Lincoln Lawyer Are On Netflix?

Season 1 of The Lincoln Lawyer has 10 episodes. Each features a smaller criminal case that Mickey Haller must deal with.

However, over the course of the season, one large case dominates most of the storyline.

That was the same for season 2 as the storyline was dominated by one client, Lisa Trammel. Season 2 also has ten episodes.

And we now know that The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will 10 episodes. So there are currently 20 episodes to watch but we will get at least 30 in total when season 3 airs.

Is The Lincoln Lawyer On Amazon Or Netflix?

The Lincoln Lawyer is a Netflix original so it can only be watched on Netflix.

Michael Connelly also wrote the Bosch novels and they have been adapted by Amazon Prime.

With seven seasons in that series, it's another gritty police drama to watch.

And although the two characters are related in the books, because they were made for different streaming platforms, they never meet in the tv versions.
