For those of you who enjoy watching Goliath on Amazon, the news that we’ve got today is of the bittersweet variety. The series has been officially renewed, but unfortunately, season 4 is going to be the last one. It’s a hard pill to swallow, but we suppose that we should be happy to get any good news at all here! Just think in terms of what happened at the end of the season 3 finale, where Billy McBride’s life was put into jeopardy.
Judging from some of what we’re hearing now, it does seemas though Billy is going to find a way to survive that cliffhanger. It’s either that or there is a different way in which the story is going to be told without him. In a new statement confirming the renewal (via TVLine), here is what executive producer Lawrence Trilling had to say:
“I’m thrilled we get another season to tell Billy McBride’s story … Our latest case tackles a timely global crisis that impacts an entire generation, and we will be adding some exceptional talent to our already amazing cast.
“I’m so grateful to everyone at Amazon for their support of the show. [Fellow EPs] Jennifer [Ames], Steve [Turner] and Geyer [Kosinski] have been dream partners, Billy Bob is a constant inspiration, and I’ve been blessed to work with a stellar cast and crew.”
While four seasons may not feel like an altogether long period of time for a show to run on the air, and it’s actually rather nice for Goliath to get some sort of official final-season order. It’s so much better than being blindsided after the fact. This is a precedent that we hope that the series is going to be continuing in the future — Amazon does have a number of shows at this point with more than a couple of seasons in the can.
For those interested, we’ve added the fate of Goliath to our Renewal/Cancellation Guide, which gives you a sense as to how a number of different shows are faring.
