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 picked up for a third season. The legal drama, which comes from David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro, has aired two well-received seasons on the Internet giant's streaming service since its premiere in 2016.
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.
Season 3, which is expected in 2019, is adding some new cast members for its upcoming story line. Dennis Quaid, Amy Brenneman, and Beau Bridges are a few familiar names that fans can look forward to seeing when the show returns. Current showrunner Lawrence Trilling, who is its third overall, will continue to helm the series going forward.
