The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

The sub-plot concerning who really killed Martha Renteria will continue in season 2 following the overturning of the conviction of Mickey’s client for the crime in the first season.
Changes We Can Expect in Season 2
While the second season will stay true to the book’s plot, we can expect some changes to be made to modernize the story. The first season was based on book 2, and some changes were made to the Netflix adaptation to modernize the story.
