The Plot of ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Season 2
The second season of “The Lincoln Lawyer” has finally been announced and it’s loaded with new cast members. One of the big names joining the cast is Emmy Award-winner, Lana Parrilla (“Breaking Bad”), who will play an attorney named Carmen Mollen. As a character detail, Deadline reports that Carmen is described as “a tough and ambitious woman who believes in getting what she wants.”
Along with Parrilla, the new cast members include: Jeremy Strong (CBS’ “Mad Men”), Kathy Bates (FX’s “American Horror Story”) and Richard Dreyfuss (Demand Media’s “HBO Movie Downloads”). According to TVLine, Strong will play a judge named Paul Henderson, Bates will portray Vera Starkweather – described as an “eccentric widow [who] is also a powerful businesswoman” – while Dreyfuss will play Robert Freeman, described as a “wealthy mogul.”
It looks like things are heating up for defense lawyer Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey) in Season 2 of “The Lincoln Lawyer.” In addition to Parrilla and the other newcomers listed above, stars Diane Kruger and John Leguizamo have both confirmed that they’ll appear in Season 2 as well. Kruger will play a criminal defense lawyer named Evelyn Vogel and Leguizamo will portray Alberto Gallozzi. We can’t wait
What to Expect in ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Season 2
Season 2 of “The Lincoln Lawyer” is set to air in early 2019 and will feature an expanded cast including new additions, Lana Parrilla (“Breaking Bad”) and Sacha Baron Cohen (“Borat”). Here’s what you can expect:
1. A continued focus on the law
In the first season, we saw Mickey Haller (Lana Parrilla) as a criminal lawyer who begins to dabble in white-collar work. In Season 2, we’ll see her continue this trajectory by taking on some serious cases. These may include defending a major bank executive charged with bribery or representing an environmental group fighting a government land grab.
2. More comedy
Although Season 1 was largely shot in front of a live audience, showrunner Alan Ball says that they’ve been working on scripts for Season 2 that are much more comedic in nature. This should make for an entertaining watch as Mickey tries to navigate the legal system while still maintaining her sense of humor – something she learned from her father (Sacha Baron Cohen).
3. More mystery
As always with “The Lincoln Lawyer,” there will be plenty of intrigue and suspense – especially since we’ll be learning more about Mickey’s past throughout the season. We can only hope that some surprising revelations come about!
Casting Updates for ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Season 2
The cast of “The Lincoln Lawyer” has been updated with the addition of Lana Parrilla. Parrilla will play the role of Kathleen Turner’s lawyer in the show’s second season.
Parrilla joins previously announced stars Matthew McConaughey and Michael Douglas. Season two is set to air in late 2013 on HBO.
Premiere Date for ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Season 2
Los Angeles, CA – “The Lincoln Lawyer” has announced that it will have its Season 2 Premiere Date on Thursday, March 16th at 9 PM ET/PT on TNT. The show will be returning with all new episodes and an all new cast. Actress Lana Parrilla (“Sherlock,” “Breaking Bad”) has been added to the cast as Anita Alvarez.
Anita is the district attorney who nearly had Matthew McConaughey’s titular character, Mickey Haller, disbarred. The season will explore the ensuing battle between Haller and Alvarez, as well as their personal relationships with key players in the criminal justice system.
The Lincoln Lawyer has added another major name to its cast, with Lana Parrilla signing on for a recurring role. Though the exact character that Parrilla will play is still under wraps, we can confirm that her arrival marks a significant change in the show’s direction. With big-name stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Billy Bob Thornton already signed on, The Lincoln Lawyer looks poised for an explosive second season. So what does this mean for viewers? Keep your eyes peeled — there might not be much left to the mystery once Season 2 airs!
