Mickey Haller has won two of the biggest cases of his career in The Lincoln Lawyer. We know from the book series that there’s more to come in season 3.

This article contains spoilers for The Lincoln Lawyer seasons 1 and 2.

It is a tumultuous time in Hollywood currently. The Writer’s Guild of America has now surpassed 100 days of strike action, and SAG-AFTRA is showing solidarity right beside them. Many television and film productions have been put on hiatus, which begs the question – has The Lincoln Lawyer even been renewed at this juncture? 

Ted Humphrey, showrunner for the Netflix hit, confirmed that he and his writing team had already been working on a season 3 before the WGA began their strike action. An official renewal has not been announced, and there may be a delay in production for obvious reasons, but chances still look good we’ll see Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) and his team again. And thanks to the precedent set by the Mickey Haller book series, we have a good idea of what to expect from season 3.

Thus far, fans of Michael Connelly’s Mickey Haller novels have been treated to fairly faithful, albeit abridged versions of two of the Lincoln Lawyers more notable outings. Season 1 brought us the chilling, twist-filled adaptation of Connelly’s sophomore effort, The Brass Verdict, where Mickey defends a video game mogul Trevor Elliot (Christopher Gorham) suspected of killing his wife and her lover. When the trial ends, Mickey has done his job admirably, perhaps even too well, as Elliot is found not guilty, only for it to be revealed that the video game creator actually did commit the crime. As Elliot begins celebrating the release of his newest work, he is shot dead in the street, something that Detective Raymond Griggs (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) calls a “Brass Verdict.”
