When Will Netflix Release The Lincoln Lawyer?

The Lincoln Lawyer will be available on Netflix on May 13th, 2022, with all 10 episodes available in only a few days. The show is produced by David E. Kelley, who has worked on shows like The Practice and Boston Legal. It’s based on a series of Michael Connelly novels about a Los Angeles lawyer named Mickey Haller who works out of his Lincoln Town Car.
