Amazon Prime Video announced Tuesday that it has picked up the third season of popular original series Goliath, starring Golden Globe-winner Billy Bob Thornton.
It will launch in 2019.
Goliath Season 3 boasts an all-star cast including Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow), Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers), Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Beau Bridges (Homeland), Griffin Dunne (House of Lies), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks: The Return), and Shamier Anderson (Destroyer).
The new episodes will center on the surprising death of an old friend of Billy McBride's (Thornton) and his mission to take a case in the drought-stricken Central Valley where he comes face-to-face with a new Goliath: a billionaire rancher (Quaid) and his sister (Brenneman).
In his quest to secure the truth, old enemies and personal demons resurface, forcing him to confront his own mortality.
Goliath also stars Nina Arianda (Stan & Ollie) as Patty Solis-Papagian, Tania Raymonde (Cliffs of Freedom) as Brittany Gold, Diana Hopper (Bit) as Denise McBride, Ana de la Reguera (Narcos) as Marisol Silva, and Julie Brister (Review) as Marva Jefferson.
Goliath is executive produced by Lawrence Trilling (Parenthood), Geyer Kosinski (Fargo), and Jennifer Ames & Steve Turner (Boardwalk Empire).
“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, Amazon Studios.
“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.”
Goliath's eight-episode second season debuted back June, so the hefty wait for the renewal was a cause for concern. Six months is a long time to wait to announce more episodes.
The good news here is that the show is coming back, and there is some new blood in the cast.
