11"He Rides Again"Liz FriedlanderDavid E. KelleyMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Los Angeles lawyer Jerry Vincent is shot dead in a parking garage, and the killer steals his briefcase. His law practice is transferred to attorney Mickey Haller, supervised by Judge Mary Holder, including the case of Trevor Elliott, a video game designer accused of murdering his wife Lara and her lover. Taking over Jerry's office, Mickey and his paralegal/second ex-wife Lorna Crane refuse to let police detective Raymond Griggs search Jerry's files. Mickey meets Trevor, who is determined to go to trial in one week, and takes the case of Izzy Letts, a former drug addict accused of stealing a necklace. A recovering addict himself, Mickey gets Izzy's charges dropped and hires her as his driver. His first ex-wife, prosecutor Maggie McPherson, is wary as they work toward joint custody of their teenage daughter, Hayley. Mickey hires Lorna's boyfriend, Cisco, as his investigator and they visit Trevor's home, the scene of the murders, where Cisco reveals that he and Lorna are engaged. Mickey convinces Trevor to hire him as his attorney, and he and Izzy discover they are being followed.
22"The Magic Bullet"Erin FeeleyTed HumphreyMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Izzy and Mickey evade the SUV tailing them, which Mickey later sees outside his home. Cisco questions Jerry's investigator, Bruce Carlin, who tells him Jerry took him off Trevor's case. Judge Holder allows Mickey to give Griggs the names of clients who threatened Jerry, and in exchange, Griggs reveals that Jerry frequented a casino. Cisco and Lorna learn that yoga teacher Jan Rilz, Lara's murdered lover, had affairs with multiple clients. Mickey takes over the case of Terrell Coleman, a single father targeted by a jealous police officer, and brings Hayley to work with him, slowly repairing his relationship with Maggie. Lorna discovers that Jerry drafted a motion for a continuance but was killed before he could file it. Trevor is unwilling to jeopardize his company's pending acquisition, forcing Mickey to refuse a continuance from Judge Stanton. Jerry's receptionist, with whom he was having an affair, reveals that he had a "magic bullet" to win Trevor's case. Unbeknownst to Mickey, his car has been bugged by the driver of the mysterious SUV.
33"Momentum"Erin FeeleyTed HumphreyMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Mickey learns he is supposed to represent Eli Wyms, who is not among Jerry's files. Preparing to indict businessman Angelo Soto for trafficking undocumented workers, Maggie is assisted by Lee Lankford, a detective Mickey does not trust. Griggs shows Mickey a surveillance photo of a possible suspect in Jerry's murder, and Cisco discovers Carlin has gone into hiding, and gives Mickey a gun to protect himself. Mickey has the unresponsive Wyms, a veteran sniper arrested for shooting at police, taken off the medication he was given in custody. Lorna questions Carol Dubois, one of Rilz's "clients" who gave him a large investment, and she mentions another client, Neema Shavar. At Jerry's memorial, Lankford taunts Mickey for failing his client Jésus Menendez; tempted to drink, Mickey is saved by Izzy. Soto is arrested, while Trevor reveals to Mickey that he knew about his wife's affair, but maintains his innocence. Mickey realizes that Wyms was arrested hours before Trevor and is somehow Jerry's "magic bullet". In the parking garage, he encounters the man from Griggs' photo, who chases him to the office. Scaring him off with Cisco's gun, Mickey calls Griggs.
44"Chaos Theory"Bill D'EliaChris DowneyMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Mickey deduces that Griggs faked the surveillance photo and "suspect" to test whether Mickey was involved in Jerry's murder, and they plan to draw out the real killer, with Mickey announcing that he has backups of Jerry's stolen files. Soto makes bail, and Maggie's lead witness becomes unwilling to cooperate. Mickey meets Wyms, now coherent, who refuses to tell his story until Mickey gets him released. Seeing Mickey's announcement, Carlin warns him that Jerry's murder is connected to Trevor's case and agrees to meet. Mickey tells Izzy that Jésus Menendez was convicted of killing a prostitute after a witness disappeared. Spooked, Carlin calls off the meeting, and Mickey and Cisco find the bug in Mickey's car, which they leave to avoid tipping off whoever is listening. At Hayley's soccer game, Mickey negotiates a deal for Wyms, but Wyms knows nothing about Trevor's case. Cisco and Lorna track down Carlin, who is pulled over by police and accidentally struck and killed by a passing car. Mickey comforts Maggie after her witness is murdered; they share an intimate moment, and Mickey attends an NA meeting with Izzy.
55"Twelve Lemmings in a Box"Bill D'EliaAndi BushellMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)

Maggie's superior Janelle Simmons is running to unseat district attorney Robert Cardone, and tells her to prove Soto killed her witness or drop the charges. Mickey asks his client Cherry for help finding fellow prostitute Gloria "Glory Days" Dayton, the witness who disappeared after promising to testify for Menendez. Cisco learns that Neema Shavar's ex-husband Anton is the head of a shady security company, and Rilz filed a restraining order against him but failed to appear at the hearing. Despite Lorna's suspicion of Carol Dubois, Cisco approaches Neema and records himself being threatened by Anton. During voir dire, Trevor's actions force Mickey to excuse a favorable juror. Izzy learns her ex-girlfriend is using drugs again, and Mickey is accosted by the Road Saints, Cisco's former biker gang. Lorna encounters a former classmate from law school, which she left behind. Maggie and Lankford approach Tanya Cruz, Soto's pregnant girlfriend, and Maggie refers her to Mickey. Griggs tells Mickey that Jerry withdrew $150,000 the same day Carlin made a delivery, possibly a bribe for Trevor's case.
66"Bent"David GrossmanGladys RodriguezMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Mickey remembers his late father, a famed L.A. attorney himself, and consults his friend and colleague David "Legal" Siegel. Cisco finds out Mickey is assisting the Road Saints, and he and Lorna confirm that Judge Stanton was not the recipient of Jerry's bribe. Lara's former coworker Sonia Patel tells Mickey that Lara reached out for the first time in years, planning to meet before she was killed. Visiting an embittered Menendez in prison, Mickey admits to Izzy that his failure to help Menendez led to his addiction. Tanya asks for Mickey's help to escape Soto, while Cardone suggests Maggie support him for DA. A comment from Hayley leads Mickey to realize that Jerry's bribe was to buy a juror. He confronts Trevor, who admits that Juror Number Seven is a plant, and that his company is funded by Russian mobsters; he insists that he had nothing to do with the deaths of Lara, Rilz, or Jerry, but Lara was going to divorce him, putting the Russians' money at risk. Mickey remembers his father's words: it is harder to live with losing a case when you know your client is innocent.
77"Lemming Number Seven"David GrossmanZach CaligMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Mickey asks Cisco to investigate Juror Number Seven and the dangerous Russian billionaire apparently funding Trevor's company. Lorna is confronted by Carol, who is convinced of Trevor's guilt. Cooperating with Maggie, Tanya reveals that Soto visits a flower shop just before people disappear or are killed, including Maggie's witness. Lorna breaks up a fight between Hayley and a soccer teammate, learning Hayley is being bullied for her father defending Trevor. In court, Mickey suggests that Rilz was the killer's primary target and Anton Shavar is a possible suspect. Lorna decides to return to law school, and Cisco identifies Juror Number Seven as Glenn McSweeney. Maggie and Lankford connect the flower shop to gang activity, with detectives Winters and Perez identifying a potential hitman. Judge Stanton receives an anonymous letter incriminating Juror Number Seven, who has disappeared, seemingly tipped off. Both Mickey and prosecutor Jeff Golantz refuse a mistrial, and Judge Stanton adjourns court to verify the rest of the jury. Mickey calls in a favor with the Road Saints to watch over Maggie and Hayley.
88"The Magic Bullet Redux"Alonso Alvarez-BarredaJustin PeacockMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Cherry points Mickey to one of Gloria's regular clients, whom Cisco blackmails into arranging for Gloria to return to Los Angeles. Golantz calls Sonia as a surprise witness, and she describes Lara as a brilliant coder who was kept isolated by the controlling Trevor, but Mickey casts doubt on her motives for coming forward. Simmons pressures Maggie to convict Soto by the end of the week, and Lankford makes a questionable search of the suspected hitman's phone, but finds no definitive evidence. Izzy has reconnected with her drug-abusing ex-girlfriend, and Cisco becomes concerned about Mickey's dealings with the Road Saints. In court, a forensic technician confirms the large amount of gunshot residue found on Trevor's hands, but Mickey realizes that the casino Jerry seemed to frequent is near the vehicle maintenance facility for the county sheriff's department. With testimony from an amateur crime scene videographer, a sheriff's department mechanic, and a ballistics expert, Mickey establishes the "magic bullet": the gunshot residue came from Eli Wyms, transported in the same police vehicle hours before Trevor. Mickey also casts suspicion on Anton Shavar, but Trevor tells Mickey he still wants to testify himself. With Terrell Coleman's help, Mickey rescues Izzy after her ex-girlfriend nearly persuades her to get high.
99"The Uncanny Valley"Alonso Alvarez-BarredaChris Downey and Ryan Hoang WilliamsMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Lankford fails to intimidate Soto's hitman into confessing, forcing Maggie to ask Tanya to wear a wire. Mickey reluctantly allows Trevor to take the stand, but faces a crushing cross-examination from Golantz. However, Mickey delivers a compelling closing argument, hinging on the impossibility of Trevor disposing of all evidence in the seven minutes before the police arrived. Cisco discovers that Trevor's Russian mob ties are a lie, leaving them unsure who has been spying on Mickey, but the jury finds Trevor not guilty, upsetting Carol. Mickey apologizes to Wyms for Jerry leaving him in prison, and gives him an affidavit allowing him to sue Jerry's estate for malpractice. With Maggie and Lankford monitoring nearby, Tanya records Soto implicating himself, and he nearly kills her before he is arrested. As Trevor celebrates his acquittal, Mickey confronts him with the truth: Lara was going to reveal herself as the true genius behind Trevor's success, so he killed her and Rilz, disposing of the gun and his bloody clothes with his drone. Trevor taunts Mickey, but claims not to know who has been spying on him. Lured to Griffith Park, Mickey is knocked out by Glenn McSweeney, Juror Number Seven.
1010"The Brass Verdict"David GrossmanTed Humphrey and Michael ConnellyMay 13, 2022 (2022-05-13)
Mickey fights off McSweeney, who falls to his death, and rekindles his relationship with Maggie. Lorna finds Gloria and reveals that she dropped out of law school after a professor hit on her, and Gloria explains that Detective Perez threatened her into leaving town. Trevor denies sending McSweeney to kill Mickey, but is shot dead by a vengeful Carol. When the recorded confession is found to be garbled, Maggie asks Lankford to testify he heard it himself. At Menendez's hearing, Gloria testifies to being attacked by the real killer, a man with a distinctive tattoo. Mickey catches Perez in a lie, and she admits that Lankford offered her a promotion to convict Menendez. This destroys Maggie's case, making her angry with Mickey, and Cardone reassigns her to Van Nuys. Cisco offers to settle his debt to the Road Saints himself, and Maggie has Soto arrested on federal charges instead. Mickey deduces that Jerry bribed Judge Holder to tamper with Trevor's jury; she had Jerry killed by McSweeney and sent him to kill Mickey, having bugged his car. Holder is arrested, and Mickey greets Menendez on his release from prison, while Lorna reapplies to law school. Mickey goes surfing for the first time since the accident that led to his addiction, watched from afar by the man with the tattoo.

Freemann offers a plea deal, which Mickey believes proves there is a flaw in her case, while Cisco questions Walter Kim, a building inspector with a photo of Lisa assaulting Bondurant at a protest, which led to the restraining order. Mickey learns Henry has started the podcast anyway, and Lisa rejects Freemann's deal, while Mickey's team learns that Bondurant lost $200 million on a construction project. Cisco confronts Kaz, who admits he was forced to become an informant after killing a man in prison; Kaz has set the Road Saints up to be arrested, but Cisco declines to join him in witness protection.

Lisa's trial begins, and Detective O'Brien delivers convincing testimony for the prosecution, including Lisa's bloody gloves and missing hammer, but mentions a shard of glass found at the crime scene. Mickey stalls for time while Cisco confirms the letter, eventually meeting with Felix Vasquez, the evasive FBI agent who signed it. Izzy cannot afford the newly increased rent on the studio, and Mickey introduces the letter to paint Grant as an alternative suspect. Mickey tells Henry to assure Grant there is no concrete evidence against him, while Freemann calls on Vasquez to testify, but his answers imply the FBI believes Grant is guilty, and Vasquez privately reveals to Mickey that he sent the letter himself. Hayley continues to stay with Mickey, who learns she has a crush on a boy at her riding lessons. Freemann introduces a newly discovered piece of evidence: the murder weapon.

Lisa maintains her innocence, but Mickey refuses to let her testify, telling Cisco to find her ex-husband. Mickey asserts that the hammer, suddenly found in a neighboring yard, was planted after the trial began, and cuts off Freeman's case by acknowledging the hammer as Lisa's and the blood as Bondurant's. Hayley and Mickey's team surprise him for his birthday, along with the arrival of his dramatic mother Elena, an actress. He is visited by Jeff Trammell, now willing to testify for money, and sends him away. A disgruntled neighbor testifies about Lisa's violent fights with Jeff, but Mickey reveals that the neighbor lost out on a million-dollar deal due to Lisa's refusal to sell her property to Bondurant. Mickey also introduces video proving Bondurant was the aggressor in the photo taken by Kim, whom Lisa's employee René seems to recognize. Lorna helps Izzy prove she was discriminated against, securing her new studio. Freemann calls on Henry, who provides an interview with Lisa proving she knew where Bondurant parked his car, the scene of his murder. Out of options, Mickey calls Lisa to the stand.

Lisa does well under Mickey's questioning, but Freemann provokes her into an ugly outburst about Jeff. René is called as a character witness, but Freemann confronts him with his past angry social media posts about Lisa. Freemann also casts doubt when Dr. Arslanian, Mickey's forensics expert, uses a mannequin to demonstrate the improbability of Lisa killing the much taller Bondurant. Mickey comforts his mother after she is dropped by her agent, finally inviting her to watch him in court. Lorna presents Mickey's secret strategy to Legal Siegel for a law school assignment: Mickey puts Grant on the stand, painting him as a credible suspect and goading him into invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, preventing Freemann from cross-examining him. He then calls Cisco as a witness, revealing a van owned by Grant's business was outside Bondurant's building at the time of the murder. Vasquez warns Mickey he has displeased the FBI, and Freemann gives her closing statement. René explains that Kim visited Lisa's restaurant posing as a health inspector, giving him access to the hammer and gloves. Mickey realizes Kim was bribed by Grant and equally threatened by Bondurant, but Cisco learns Kim has gone missing.
2010"Bury Your Past"Ben Hernandez BrayTed Humphrey & Dailyn RodriguezAugust 3, 2023 (2023-08-03)
Mickey assumes Grant had Kim killed, but delivers a compelling closing argument that Lisa was framed, and she is acquitted. Elena leaves for a film shoot, and Cisco discovers that Kim's inspection mirror left the shard near Bondurant's body. Lorna and Cisco lose their wedding venue, Lisa and Mickey give in to their mutual attraction, and Mickey and Freemann settle their differences. Visiting Venice Beach with Hayley, Mickey realizes the truth about Jeff and confronts Lisa: the man he met was her former employee posing as her ex-husband. The real Jeff filed for divorce, jeopardizing Lisa's restaurant, so she killed him and buried him on her property, the reason she refused to sell to Bondurant. Mickey leaves, but Lorna has already called Griggs to investigate. Getting married at city hall, Cisco surprises Lorna with a reception at Izzy's studio, where Lorna reveals her suspicion that Lisa sent the men who attacked Mickey. Nearly hit by a car possibly sent by Grant, Mickey meets with Julian La Cosse, accused of killing Giselle Dallinger; he claims he is innocent and Giselle told him to call Mickey if he ever needed help. Mickey identifies Giselle's body, revealing the victim to be Gloria (Glory Days).

Season 3[edit]

The writers for the third season are Ted Humphrey & Dailyn Rodriguez, Gladys Rodriguez, Matthew J. Lieberman, and Lisa Quintela.[5]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In 2018, David E. Kelley wrote a spec script for a television series set up at Epix by A&E Studios. When the script failed to move forward, he decided to work on a different project with A&E, ultimately adapting The Lincoln Lawyer after sharing his interests in working on legal dramas. In June 2019, the project was given a series production commitment by CBS.[3] In February 2020, Ted Humphrey came aboard as showrunner and Kiele Sanchez joined the cast as Lorna,[6] with Angus Sampson and Jazz Raycole joining a few weeks later as Cisco and Izzy, respectively.[7][8] In May 2020, it was reported that the series would not be going forward at CBS due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.[9]

At the time of the decision, which CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl called a "tough call", two scripts for the series had been written, with two more in development, and Logan Marshall-Green had been in negotiations to star as main character Mickey Haller.[9][10] On January 11, 2021, Netflix picked up the series with a 10-episode order, down from the original 13-episode plan,[9] and announced that Manuel Garcia-Rulfo would star as Haller.[11][12] In February 2021, Neve Campbell and Becki Newton joined the cast, with Raycole and Sampson returning to the series.[13][14] Christopher Gorham was cast in March.[15] In April, Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine was cast in a role created specifically for the series,[16] with LisaGay Hamilton,[17] Jamie McShane, and Reggie Lee joining the cast in recurring roles.[18] Krista Warner was cast in May.[19]

On June 14, 2022, Netflix renewed the series for a second season, which will be based on The Fifth Witness.[20] On August 30, 2023, Netflix renewed the series for a third season, which will be based on The Gods of Guilt.[21]

Filming[edit]

The Lincoln Lawyer began filming in Los Angeles on March 30, 2021.[22][23] That same day, author Michael Connelly revealed on social media that the COVID-19 pandemic had previously delayed principal photography for around a year.[24] On June 8, 2021, Connelly said in an interview that six out of the ten episodes had been filmed, of which three of them had been edited completely, while also confirming that characters in the Amazon Prime Video series Bosch, including Haller's half-brother Harry Bosch (portrayed by Titus Welliver), would not be making appearances as both shows are from different networks.[25] Filming concluded on August 3, 2021.[26] Notable filming locations included Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey,[27] Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles,[28] Grand Avenue,[29] the Wilshire Ebell Theatre,[30] and Wilshire Boulevard.[31]

Filming on season 2 was due to begin on October 31, 2022 and run through March 2023.[32] Filming locations for season 2 included the Paseo Club in Valencia, The Cowboy Palace Saloon in Chatsworth, Sixth Street Bridge, and the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.[33]

Filming on season three began on January 18, 2024.[4]

Lawsuit[edit]

In August 2021, A+E Studios subsidiary Frankl & Bob Films II, LLC filed a lawsuit against ViacomCBS for "millions of dollars" in losses after it decided to not move forward with the series the previous year.[34] Citing the company's creation on December 4, 2019, the documents state that "after the merger, ViacomCBS's new leadership, led by [George Cheeks] had second-guessed CBS Network's decision to enter into the 13-episode series commitment," and that after finding it "was not valuable to ViacomCBS ... Mr. Cheeks and his fellow ViacomCBS executives decided that it would be better for ViacomCBS as a whole if CBS Network breached that commitment."[34] The documents also claim that ViacomCBS rejected the series because the first episode had not been filmed and said "that breach ensured that the series would never make it onto broadcast television."[34]

Release[edit]

Television series poster

The first season premiered on Netflix on May 13, 2022.[35]

Reception[edit]

Audience viewership[edit]

By its first three days of release, the series finished #2 on Netflix's weekly ratings. In its first full week of streaming, it was the platform's most-watched English-language series globally, with over 108 million viewing hours, more than three times the second-place show.[36] Between May 8 and June 5, 2022 the series was watched 260.53 million hours globally.[37]

Critical response[edit]

On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, 79% of 33 critics' reviews are positive, with an average rating of 6.50/10. The website's consensus reads: "David E. Kelley's adaptation of The Lincoln Lawyer relies too much on quirk to paper over its lack of true novelty, but this is a reliable enough vehicle for fans of legal pulp."[38] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 62 out of 100 based on 16 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[39]
