Billy Bob Thornton is back as a maverick lawyer on Amazon next month.
Season 2 of Goliath will return to Amazon on Friday, June 15.
The series stars Billy Bob Thornton as maverick lawyer Billy McBride, alongside new cast members that include Mark Duplass, Morris Chestnut, and Tania Raymonde.
Season two follows McBride as he takes on a new case close to his heart, one that drags him into the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles and tests him in ways he never imagined.
“We’re excited to bring back a new season of Goliath starring Golden Globe Winner Billy Bob Thornton,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “This chapter tells a powerfully suspenseful, multilayered story that explores the gritty side of a broken political and legal system.”
Thornton will reprise his role as Billy McBride who, after winning a huge verdict in the Borns Tech case, is reluctantly pulled back into the law when his friend’s 16-year-old son is arrested for a double homicide. However, as Billy, Patty (Nina Arianda, Florence Foster Jenkins) and the team start to investigate what appears to be an open and shut murder case, they begin to untangle a deadly conspiracy in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, where drugs, real estate and politics intermingle. Once again, Billy finds himself facing a new Goliath, one that is as formidable as the city’s mayoral race and as tall as the skyline itself. Thornton won the 2017 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series for Goliath’s first season.
The new season of Goliath also stars Mark Duplass (Togetherness, Room 104) as Tom Wyatt, a successful developer who wants to give Los Angeles a distinct skyline, Morris Chestnut (The Best Man, Think Like a Man) as Chief Deputy District Attorney Hakeem Rashad, who has an old grudge against Billy, and Ana De La Reguera (Narcos, Nacho Libre) as Marisol Silva, a city councilwoman in the race to be the first Latina mayor of Los Angeles. Tania Raymonde (Lost) and Diana Hopper (Casual) also return as Brittany Gold and Denise McBride, respectively. Season two of Goliath is executive produced by Lawrence Trilling (Parenthood) and Geyer Kosinski (Fargo). The series is created by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal) and Jonathan Shapiro (The Practice).
Friday June 15 on Amazon.
