It’ll be interesting to see how they recover from that finale.
Let’s face it, who doesn’t love seeing Billy Bob Thorton on screens?
The incredibly talented actor has impressed us so many times, excelling in the likes of Sling Blade, The Man Who Wasn’t There, Bad Santa, Monster’s Ball and beyond.
Having worked with the Coen Brothers previously, it wasn’t too much of a surprise to see just how perfectly suited he was to the TV adaptation of their nineties classic Fargo. He was terrific in the role of Lorne Malvo in season 1, and fortunately, he returned to TV with legal drama Goliath.
The Amazon Studios series premiered on Prime Video back in 2016 and has since become a fond favourite of many Billy Bob lovers and TV fanatics. It centres upon lawyer Billy McBride as he searches for redemption in a world which has become increasingly harder to navigate – if you’re not wealthy, of course. Season 3 landed on Friday, October 4th 2019 and has gone down a treat so far, despite some head-scratching moments.
Goliath: Back for season 4?
*WARNING: SEASON 3 SPOILERS*
As of yet, Goliath has not been renewed for a season 4. Right now, it’s pretty uncertain when taking the season 3 finale into consideration.
In the episode’s conclusive moments, we witness Diana Blackwood (Amy Brenneman) shoot Billy (Billy Bob Thornton) in a parking lot, fleeing and leaving him for dead – his fate left unknown. Throughout the season it’s suggested that the last person he will see before he dies is himself, which isn’t exactly easy to predict. However, the foreshadowing pays off when he spies his reflection in a puddle of water as he fights for breath.
Then again, with the series exhibiting some weird turns, can we take the sequence literally? According to Yahoo, the actor told EW: “There are metaphorical things throughout the season, and I think, whether it’s literal or not, it’s definitely a death and rebirth for him…”
There’s no way to be certain of Goliath’s return yet, but if one thing’s for sure, it’s that the fans really, really want it!
Fans talk Goliath season 4 on Twitter
Since season 3 premiered, audiences have been quick to binge through its eight episodes, and are already looking ahead in hopes for more.
The general consensus essentially reflects this tweet from a fan on Twitter: “I’m already ready for season 4 of #Goliath,” and yes, we certainly feel them on that one.
Hilariously, one also joked upon reflection of the latest season: “#Goliath Season 3 is actually Twin Peaks Season 4.” It definitely ratcheted up some of the quirkiness this time around, and we hope they’ll continue to do the same if it’s renewed.
Another fan weighed in: “Just finished Goliath on Prime. The best season yet. Coen Brothers meets David Lynch meets Chinatown, beautifully shot with terrific acting and a knife-sharp script. Hoping there’s a chance of Season 4,” while one also expressed: “Oh no! Please don’t let this be the end of Billy! Or Goliath! Please save him for a season 4!” in light of the shocking ending.
A number of fans have addressed the sudden cliffhanger, with this viewer pleading: “#Goliath OMG, there has got to be a season 4. Don’t leave us hanging!” On the whole though, we can all agree with the following tweet, which simply reads: “So where’s my season 4 renewal?…” So, what are the chances?

Billy Bob Thornton gives us hope!
According to the earlier source, Billy Bob Thornton expressed in an interview: “If they’re inclined to do another season, I think I would be inclined to. I think they would be because it’s been a successful show for them… So if we can figure out a way to get me back out there, it could happen.”
Is that great news or what!?
Hearing that he’s enthusiastic about its potential continuation and open about ideas to continue Billy’s journey, we’d say it’s pretty likely that Goliath season 4 is in the pipeline. We’ll just have to sit tight and see…
