It’s been a while, but The Lincoln Lawyer is finally back with new episodes. The highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s hit legal drama returns this summer. As the stream previously announced, The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 will be split into two parts.
Although some story threads carry over from season 1, the second season opens up a whole new tangled web of a murder trial for Mickey Haller and derives its story from the fourth novel in Michael Connelly’s Haller book series, titled The Fifth Witness.
In the new season, Once Upon a Time star Lana Parrilla and Chicago Med alum Yaya DaCosta join the cast in two major recurring roles. While DaCosta plays Mickey’s rival lawyer in the courtroom, Parrilla plays a potential love interest who finds herself arrested, as teased in the trailer.
But just how many episodes are there in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2, and how many episodes can fans look forward to in each of the two drops this summer? We’re sharing the episode count for both parts of season 2.
How many episodes are there in The Lincoln Lawyer season 2?
The Lincoln Lawyer season 2 contains 10 total episodes, which will be split into two parts as mentioned above. The first part of season 2 releases on Thursday, July 6 and consists of five episodes, while the second part of season 2 releases on Thursday, Aug. 3 also consists of five episodes. It’s an even split right down the middle.
Recently, some Netflix shows have gotten uneven season splits. Stranger Things season 4 had a seven-episode and two-episode split, Firefly Lane season 2 had a nine-episode and seven-episode split, and The Witcher season 3 has a five-episode and three-episode split. But most of the time, Netflix splits seasons in half, just like it did with You season 4.
Because the season will be released in two parts, season 2 episode 5 of The Lincoln Lawyer likely ends with a cliffhanger that will have fans on the edge of their seats for a few weeks until the second half of the season drops. One thing’s for sure, you don’t want to miss a single episode of this season when both batches arrive this summer.
