About Goliath Series
Goliath is an American legal drama web series that stars Billy Bob Thornton and was made by David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro. The first season started on October 13, 2016, and had eight episodes. Amazon picked up the show on December 13, 2016, for the second season of eight episodes, which came out on June 14, 2018. The show was picked up for the third season of eight episodes on August 10, 2018. The fourth episode came out in September 2021.
Billy McBride, played by Billy Bob Thornton, is a once-successful lawyer who has fallen on hard times and is now working as a low-end ambulance chaser. He takes on the case of Patty Solis-Papagian (Tania Raymonde), who says she was fired from her job at Cooperman & McBride for no good reason. Billy’s old boss, Donald Cooper (William Hurt), and his son, Wes, run the company (Damon Gupton).
When Billy looks into Patty’s case, he finds a colossal plot involving the Cooperman & McBride law firm, their clients, and corrupt members of the legal system. As Billy gets closer to the truth, he faces strong enemies who will do anything to protect their interests. Goliath is a complicated and exciting drama about the dark side of the American legal system. The series is written and acted so well that you won’t know what’s going to happen until the very end.
Has Season 5 of the Series Renewed or Cancelled?
According to Premier Date, the season 5 of the series is cancelled. The first episode of the fourth season of Goliath came out on September 24, 2021. Each of the eight episodes lasts between forty and fifty minutes. The new adventures in this season are sure to please both old and new fans. The people who made the show knew it could be good. The first episode of the next season will air on November 14, 2021, right after the end of the third season. The producers of the show have said that the fourth season will be the last, so there won’t be a Goliath Season 5. This means that we may have seen McBride in the courtroom for the last time, which is sad for many longtime fans of the show.
Why has the Season 5 of Series Got Cancelled?
Billy Bob Thornton has already said that he was only hired for four seasons of the show because he didn’t want it to go on for too long. In November 2019, Amazon said the show would continue for a fourth and final season. Billy told Newsweek that it felt like the right time to leave while they were ahead: “You know, there’s something about when a series goes a bridge too far. We knew this season was good, so it made sense to end it here.” He also said that he might be interested in other entertainment-related opportunities.
That doesn’t mean the 66-year-old American actor won’t miss playing the iconic role of the down-and-out lawyer again: “I’ll miss the cast and crew, but also being able to play a character that was closer to who I am than most characters I played. If I were an attorney in Los Angeles, I would probably be Billy McBride.” Now that the exciting journey is over, Billy has had time to think about how the story ends for his character. “I think all along he’s been trying to find out who he is and what he wants. Is it a success? Is it money? But at the end of the day, he wants a relationship with his daughter, Denise.”
