Goliath Renewed for Season 2, Names Dexter EP as New Showrunner

Goliath is guilty… of being renewed for a second season.

Amazon on Wednesday announced that it has renewed the David E. Kelley-produced legal drama. Additionally, Peabody Award winner Clyde Phillips, who was previously at the helm of Dexter (Seasons 1-4) and Nurse Jackie (Seasons 5-7), has been tapped to serve as the day-to-day showrunner.

Goliath, which first premiered in October, won Billy Bob Thornton a Golden Globe for Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Though ratings for streaming services are famously never released, Amazon claims that Goliath was its top-binged first season ever for a U.S.-produced original over its first 10 days.

“Amazon is proud of Goliath and Billy Bob’s amazing, Golden Globe-winning performance,” Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama & VR at Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “Great shows like this help elevate the art of storytelling. We can’t wait to bring our customers a new season soon.”

No word yet on when we can expect Season 2.

    Goliath S1 was great. Watched it all in a weekend because I couldn’t stop. Can’t wait to see where they take this S2. Billy Bob truly has only gotten better and better.

    The people associated with the show must of held up the renewal, hence the new showrunner. Was surprised it took so long.

  4. Steven says:

    I’m glad! It was a good show.

    Show feels like a cheaply-made relic of the 90s with bad characters and one good performance by Thornton. Promising new showrunner though.

  6. Stan says:

    Season 01 was great. Can’t wait to see Billy’s performance in SE02.
