Once a powerful lawyer, Billy McBride is now burned out and washed up, spending more time in a bar than a courtroom. When he reluctantly agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of Cooperman & McBride, the massive law firm he helped create, Billy and his ragtag team uncover a vast and deadly conspiracy, pitting them all in a life or death trial against the ultimate Goliath.
Amazon announced today that Goliath has been renewed for a second season. The legal drama, which comes from David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro, premiered on the streaming service last fall and has proven to be a solid addition to its growing stable of original series.
Goliath stars Thornton as Billy McBride, a washed up lawyer frequenting more bars than courtrooms. After agreeing to look into a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of the powerful firm he helped create, Billy and his motley crew uncover a deadly conspiracy that finds them in a life-or-death trial with the odds stacked against them.
Amazon Studios has brought in a new showrunner for Season 2 of Goliath. Clyde Phillips, who previously ran Dexter and Nurse Jackie, will helm the series on a day-to-day basis going forward. No time frame has been set yet for the show's return.
