The Lincoln Lawyer season 1 is based on the bestselling novels of Michael Connelly. With Hollywood legend David E. Kelley on board as both the creator and executive producer, there are big hopes for the next series. Kelley has a lengthy history of producing popular legal dramas, as evidenced by his work on Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal, to mention a few.
Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) and executive producer Ross Fineman are also working behind the scenes on the show (Big Sky). Despite the show’s star power and the fact that the Matthew McConaughey-led film adaptation of Connelly’s novels was a sleeper hit in 2011, the series has had a long and winding road.

The theory behind the Lincoln Lawyer
The Lincoln Lawyer has the following premise, according to Netflix:
“Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic optimist, works out of the back seat of his Lincoln, taking on cases large and small all around Los Angeles. The first season is based on the second book in the Lincoln Lawyer series, The Brass Verdict, by popular author Michael Connelly.”
What will happen in The Lincoln Lawyer season one?
The short answer is “it depends on the book they choose.”
The Lincoln Lawyer, unlike other Netflix book adaptations such as Bridgerton, does not follow a book order pattern for its series.
In fact, they decided to adapt the second book in the collection, The Brass Verdict, instead of the first. Even so, there were changes, with Christopher Gorham’s tech genius and video game entrepreneur replacing the novel’s film producer suspect.
Things are just as complicated in the remaining five books, with Haller being jailed for a murder he must show he did not commit in one of them.
Others have seen him defend a convicted child murderer, a desperate mother whose home has been foreclosed on, and a sex worker Haller had previously attempted to assist in court battles.
Who will star in the first season of The Lincoln Lawyer?
Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will almost certainly reprise his role as Mickey Haller, the title’s lawyer if The Lincoln Lawyer returns.
Izzy Letts, a recovering addict, will be accompanied by Jazz Raycole, who will serve as his right-hand lady and Lincoln vehicle driver.
Then there’s the first wife Maggie McPherson (played by Neve Campbell) and the second wife turned associate investigator Lorna (Becki Newton).
The other cast members, on the other hand, didn’t make it to the end of season one, whether due to arrest or having their lives cut short by external factors.
As a result, there’s plenty of room in the ranks for some newcomers. Especially, whatever the big case for season two could be.
