Amazon is sticking with Billy McBride for yet another year.
Announced this afternoon, the streaming platform has officially renewed the Billy Bob Thornton-led “Goliath” for a third season. The news comes almost six full months after the show’s second season was released back in June. The series is expected to come back sometime in 2019, with Lawrence Trilling returning as showrunner.
No official episode count for the show’s third season has been decided yet. However, it has been announced that Thornton will be returning for the new season alongside a whole lineup of new stars. Dennis Quaid, Amy Brenneman, Griffin Dunne, Beau Bridges, Sherilyn Fenn, and Shamier Anderson are all set to join the legal drama next year.
“Our Prime Video customers loved the first two seasons of ‘Goliath,’ and I’m excited we can bring them a new season of this sharp and surprising legal drama,” said Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon. “We have an incredible array of stars joining Billy Bob and the Goliath cast, and fans will be thrilled to see what’s in store for season three.”
The show’s third season will apparently follow Thornton’s lawyer, Billy McBride, when he takes a case in the drought-stricken Central Valley and collides with a new Goliath: a billionaire rancher and his sister, played by Quaid and Brenneman.
The first two seasons of “Goliath” are available to stream on Amazon now.
