Netflix’s New Legal Drama Series Lincoln’s lawyer soared to the most-watched list and seriously hooked viewers. You can see a trailer of it here:
The series is based on the book series of the same name by Michael Connelly and centers on a lawyer who works on the back of his Lincoln car.
A synopsis from Netflix reads: “Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law firm from the backseat of his Lincoln, as he handles cases large and small. across the vast city of Los Angeles.”
Lincoln’s lawyer also stars Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole and Angus Sampson, while author Connelly worked as writer and executive producer.
It landed on the streaming service on May 13 and is already proving to be a big hit with viewers – topping the list of most-watched streaming platforms in the US and UK.
As fans took to social media to praise the new show.
One person wrote: “Michael Connelly is one of my favorite authors. Lincoln’s lawyer on Netflix captures the essence of these books. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is a perfect blend of charm and melancholy. Worth a watch.
Another said: “Watched the new Netflix series that just came out Lincoln’s lawyer. Yes! This is Hollywood television at its finest today. I highly recommend you watch this series to see how to tell a gripping, moral, and intelligent story.
Someone else commented: “Lincoln’s lawyer was absolutely excellent, I need a season 2 immediately.
And a fourth added: “15 minutes after Lincoln’s lawyer and I beg Netflix to renew it for seasons 2 and 3.”
The 10-part season is based on the second book in the series – the first having already been adapted for the 2011 film Lincoln’s lawyer with Matthew McConaughey.
But fans might be pleased to learn that there are six books in the series, which means a second season would be very doable.
And Connelly is eager, if he gets the chance – he posted on Twitter to say: “As for season 2 of Lincoln’s lawyer, we are waiting to hear and really hope it happens. If you like the show, give it a thumbs up on Netflix. And if you enjoy rating shows on sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, we’d really appreciate that too. Everything helps. Thank you.”
