Is Goliath Season 3 cancelled already?
The Amazon drama’s upcoming second season has been riddled with potentially fatal creative differences, leading to an episode reduction, production delays and the departure of showrunner Clyde Phillips, THR reveals:
[Phillips] will be replaced by exec producer Lawrence Trilling, who worked on season one of the series. Sources say Phillips — who replaced David E. Kelley as the day to day showrunner on the series — had mapped out all 10 episodes of season two with Amazon and Thornton both signing off on scripts.
The creative rift happened after Thornton, sources say, was unhappy with how the season two premiere turned out. Production on the series was shut down and Phillips opted to step down rather than re-arc the entire season. Sources note the first four episodes of season two had been completed and were in editing. The season two premiere is now being rewritten and reshot and three episodes will be scrapped, bringing the season tally to seven. Production will resume Wednesday.
Barring a complete reversal, Goliath Season 2 is slated to release in 2018.
Goliath already has a mountain to climb to earn a third season, and cancellation wouldn’t be a surprise. Can Goliath overcome the cancellation odds? Stay tuned…
