The necromancer in Netflix comes alive during certain circumstances. This time, they opted to revive a TV series that was canceled by CBS during the earlier parts of 2020. Well, thanks to the streaming giant, The Lincoln Lawyer will be making its comeback to the screens––at least with Netflix.
The Lincoln Lawyer, written by Michael Connelly, is one of the many books from the crime-fiction American author. The story revolves around Mickey Haller, an attorney based in Los Angeles. In 2011, however, the book already got its adaptation through a movie with the same name and featured Matthew McConaughey as Haller, the titular role.
After almost a decade, CBS brought it to their lineup of TV series and had David E. Kelley spearhead the project that was based on the book and after what has already happened in the movie. However, in May of 2020, the series was canceled by the company.
As for where the story stands in conjunction with the newly acquired Netflix series, it has been said that the story will take place 9 years after the McConaughey movie. The Netflix series will also be featuring the likes of Kiele Sanchez, Angus Sampson, and Jazz Raycole.
Many controversies have circled the late CBS series. In May 2020, it was reported that Amazon Prime Video was planning to rescue the series. They had all these plans laid out for the series––eventually planning to intertwine it with other Michael Connelly pieces.
We’re here now, though, and the series is in good hands with the streaming giant. If anything, we can expect how the series will flow once they release a synopsis, trailer, or something of the kind.
If you want to be up to speed, then consider yourself lucky. The Matthew McConaughey movie was made available on the 27th of May, 2020 by the streaming giant––at least in the United States.
