Billy McBride returns to defend his friend’s 16-year-old son, accused of a grisly double homicide, in Season 2 of Goliath. The fight for the new case spills into the streets of Los Angeles and alleys of Venice Beach and, as the true culprits come to light, the implications reach as far as the mayoral race and the city’s preeminent billionaire developer. This is what Prime Video has revealed along with the release of the official trailer for the upcoming season, set to launch this summer, on June 15.
The song used in the trailer is Blues and Rock artist C.S. Armstrong’s cover to Bobby Blue Bland’s “Ain’t No Love”.
The legal drama series, created by David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro, premiered in October 2016, featuring McBride as a “burned out and washed up” attorney who spends more time in a bar than a courtroom. When he reluctantly agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of the massive law firm he helped create, Cooperman & McBride, he and his ragtag team uncover a vast and deadly conspiracy, pitting them all in a life or death trial against the ultimate Goliath.
The new eight-episode season sees also Tania Raymonde and Diana Hopper reprising their roles as Brittany Gold and Denise McBride, respectively. The cast will also include Mark Duplass as Tom Wyatt, a successful developer who wants to give Los Angeles a distinct skyline, Morris Chestnut as Chief Deputy District Attorney Hakeem Rashad, who has an old grudge against Billy, and Ana De La Reguera as Marisol Silva, a city councilwoman in the race to be the first Latina mayor of Los Angeles.
Last year, Thornton won a Golden Globe for his performance in the first season.
