Netflix’s acclaimed drama The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, has been renewed for a third season.

The upcoming 10 episodes of the book adaptation will be based on the fifth novel, The Gods of Guilt.

While fans will see the famed lawyer take on more cases across Los Angeles, the series will return without Mickey’s ex-wife Maggie McPherson (played by Neve Campbell).

The actress had a noticeably diminished role in season two after her character accepted a new job in a different city.

Those who have read the books are aware of Maggie’s impending exit as the attorney is not part of Connelly’s fifth book.
