Season one, which was released on the streaming site back in early May, was inspired by the second instalment in the series, The Brass Verdict leaving us to speculate that the follow-up may focus on events that take place in book three.

However, it could go back to the start and follow the events of the first book, which played out on the big screen in the 2011 film of the same name starring Matthew McConaughey. What we do know is that there are six books in the series, meaning there's plenty of material for creator David E. Kelley to draw from.

According to Nielsen's U.S. ranking of streaming originals, the show overtook Ozark as the most-watched show following its week of release, with viewers clocking in over 108 million hours in that first seven-day period alone, so we're hardly surprised to hear of its renewal.
