Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will reprise his role of Micky Jagger. Other cast members include Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, and Angus Sampson. However, Neve Campbell’s role is reduced as she is busy filming another series for ABC, “Avlon”. Campbell played Mick Jagger’s ex-wife and a DIA officer “Maggie McPherson“.
Season one ended with a happy ending for Micky Jagger. Jagger inherited Jerry’s practice and his cases including Trevor Elliot’s case. The “Lincoln Lawyer” was able to win Trevor Elliot’s case but Trevor got what he deserved after he got shot by Carol Dubis. The show ended with Micky being able to get over his fear of surfing, but the man with tattoos was seen watching him on the beach indicating that there someone is still after him. Also, Cisco found out about Micky’s tab with the Saints. We will find out what will happen between Saints and Micky. We will also see if Micky will get back with his first wife played by Maggie.
The series is based on the book series of the same name by Michael Connelly. There are a total of 6 books in the book series. The Netflix series adapted the second book in the series instead of the first book, as there is already a movie based on the first book starring Matthew McConaughey. According to Variety, the second season will follow the fourth book “The Fifth Witness“. However, in the second book Micky Jagger is appointed to defend Lisa Trammel who is accused of killing a banker. Even though Micky is certain his client is guilty, the last surprise comes when the verdict is in.
