Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Amazon said Tuesday it ordered a third season of Goliath to start streaming in 2019.
"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," Vernon Sanders, co-head of television at Amazon Studios, said in a statement. "We have an incredible array of stars joining Billy Bob [Thornton] and the Goliath cast, and fans will be thrilled to see what's in store for Season 3."
Created by David E. Kelley, the series follows Thornton's hard-drinking lawyer Billy McBride as he represents a new client against a corrupt powerful institution each eight-episode season.
Thornton told UPI in June that the show's spin on the classic David vs. Goliath fable resonates with viewers.
"You want to see the underdog take down the big guy," he said. "It's so relevant right now because it's all around us. The world has kind of gone wacky here."
The Goliath ensemble includes Nina Arianda, Tania Raymonde and Julie Brister. Season 3 cast additions will include Dennis Quaid, Amy Brenneman, Griffin Dunne, Sherilyn Fenn, Beau Bridges and Shamier Anderson.
