What gives? The last time we saw Maggie in The Lincoln Lawyer, she was ready to head to San Diego to take up a new position in the DA’s office. As it turns out, the third season will kick off with a flashback scene.

"We decided that a fun (and poignant) way to come into the season would be via a flashback sequence that gave us some insight into how Mickey Haller became Mickey Haller — not just the brilliant criminal defense lawyer, but the husband, the father, and the man that he would come to be," showrunners Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez told Netflix.

The Lincoln Lawyer, which knocked The Witcher season 3 off the Netflix top spot as the most-viewed show in July 2023, sees the unconventional Mickey run a law practice from his Lincoln – hence the name

With his friend Glory – AKA Giselle – dead, The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 will centre on the aftermath of the traumatic event and Mickey’s attempts to resolve it.

"It’s going to be the toughest case he’s ever had, both professionally and personally," executive producer Ross Fineman told Netflix’s Tudum last year. "This was his friend, someone he cared about, and he needs to know what happened to her. And there’s a nagging sense that he might have been responsible in some way."
