Amazon’s Goliath is looking to run for at least three seasons – however, the legal drama will have closure built into each season in case of cancellation, EP David E. Kelley tells THR:
Well, we originally thought three years, that would be great. It could go more; it could go less. But if we were told, “OK, you can only have one year, here’s the deal, one year and one year only,” that would have been fine with us. We had a story to tell over eight episodes, and we wanted to tell it and if that gives rise to year two — and we certainly hope it does because we have another to tell behind it — that’s great. [..] If it’s only year one, there’s closure at the end and I think it has currency and value even as a one-year project. And we’re seeing more of that on both cable and streaming things. Shows don’t have to be designed to run in perpetuity. If there’s a show that’s viable for one season or two seasons or three seasons, those stories are worth telling too.
Goliath Season 2 and 3 would each spawn new cases with some of the original characters returning, providing it survives the cancellation reaper.
Will Goliath live up to its not so ‘giant’ survival ambitions? Stay tuned for the very latest cancel/renew updates for Goliath Season 2 and potentially beyond…
