Netflix renewed Bridgerton for season 3. Showrunner Jess Brownell revealed the new season would focus on the love story of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).
‘The Lincoln Lawyer’
The Lincoln Lawyer is one of the most popular shows on Netflix. It was No. 1 on the Netflix Top 10 for quite a while. The Netflix original series was created by David E. Kelley and Ted Humphrey based on the novel and film of the same name. It stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Mickey Haller, a defense attorney who prefers to work out of his car than in an office. Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, Christopher Gorham, and Angus Sampson star in the new series.
Netflix has not confirmed The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 yet, but fans are hopeful it will happen on the streaming service.
‘Better Call Saul’
Better Call Saul is the hit show of the spring of 2022.
