Irby will play DEA Agent James De Marco, A decorated DEA agent whom Mickey suspects may have a sinister link to one of his cases. Klompus will play Annabeth Stephens, a neighbor of the late Giselle Dallinger, she is interviewed by Cisco, but her testimony ends up being more useful to the prosecution. Parks will play David Lyons, the longtime partner of Mickey’s client Julian La Cosse, who has been accused of the murder.

Season 3, currently in production, consists of 10 episodes and is based on the fifth book in The Lincoln Lawyer series by Michael Connelly, The Gods of Guilt. As Deadline revealed exclusively in a preview for the new season, co-showrunners and executive producers Ted Humphrey and Dailyn Rodriguez shared the unique way they’re adapting the book their way.

“While Season 3 of The Lincoln Lawyer is based on Michael Connelly’s novel The Gods of Guilt, 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,” they said.

“There is no comparable flashback in the book, so we devised something that would also serve as a fitting introduction to the story of the season, both on a plot level but also emotionally. These images, of a young Mickey finishing up surfing before a life-changing day at work, as well as cuddling on the couch with his wife Maggie after putting their young daughter Hayley to bed, are from a pair of these flashback scenes that bookend the first episode and propel us into the rest of Season 3,” they added.

In addition to Humphrey and Rodriguez, executive producers also include David E. Kelley, Michael Connelly, Ross Fineman, Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson. Kelley created the series for TV and was developed by Humphrey. A+E Studios is the studio.

Irby is coming off two hit shows that ended their runs in 2023, FX’s Mayans M.C. and HBO’s Barry. In the Kurt Sutter and Elgin James-co-created motorcycle drama Mayans.
