Netflix orders season 2 of The Lincoln Defense

La Défense Lincoln: first images from the Netflix series

The court drama adapted from Michael Connelly’s novels will be entitled to a sequel and a new case.

The verdict is in! The Lincoln Defense held. A month after the release of the first season, the legal series has just been renewed by Netflix and will therefore be entitled to a season 2.

The platform states that The Lincoln Lawyer amassed 884 million total minutes watched during its 10-episode season, “by attracting a fairly atypical audience (for streaming) because more than two-thirds of them are over 50s” according to Nielsen.

Manuel Garcia Rulfo will therefore be back for a new investigation, adapted from Connelly, knowing that season 1 of The Lincoln Defense was based on the second book, The Verdict of Lead (published in 2008).
