Even though Netflix might be losing a few things in 2022, the streamer has gained a couple new hit series, like Heartstopper and The Lincoln Lawyer. Thankfully, both shows were renewed, and now fans of the crime drama await The Lincoln Lawyer season 2.
The Lincoln Lawyer has been a stable player in the Netflix top 10 since its release back in May, and those formidable viewership figures paved the way for the new series to continue telling stories from Michael Connelly’s series of books about lawyer Mickey Haller.
Unfortunately, The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 will not be released in August 2022, but we weren’t expecting the new season to release so soon. The series wasn’t included in the complete list of August new releases, but we have some predictions for when we could see season 2.
The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 release updates
Since The Lincoln Lawyer was first released on Netflix in May 2022, after filming from late March to early August 2021, we shouldn’t expect the second season much before mid-2023.
Filming appears to take about five months, and the post-production period for season 1 was extensive. Fingers crossed, history doesn’t repeat itself and we won’t have to wait over a year for season 2. However, depending on when filming begins, it’s looking like The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 could arrive sometime in summer or fall 2023.
When Netflix announced the season 2 renewal in June 2022, showrunner Ted Humphrey tweeted his gratitude toward those who have been voraciously watching the series. He also shared that the writers and producers are “already hard at work and we hope to bring it to you very soon!”
While an official production date for The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 to begin filming hasn’t been announced, Humphrey’s reassurance that the new episodes are already been written is super exciting. We’re hoping to see filming kick off before the end of the year.
As soon as more information about The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 comes out, we’ll be sure to keep fans updated. Stay tuned for more news and updates from Gizmo Blaze!
