Amazon Releases ‘Goliath’ Final Season Trailer (TV News Roundup)

·5-min read

Amazon Prime Video released a trailer for the fourth and final season of “Goliath,” which premieres Sept. 24.

Viewers were left with a cliffhanger in the Season 3 finale, when lawyer Billy (Billy Bob Thornton) faced a murder attempt. In the new season, Billy returns to his Big Law roots and attempts to take on the opioid industry and its leaders, including George Stax (J.K. Simmons), the leader of one of the largest family-owned pharmaceutical companies, and his brother Frank (Bruce Dern). He and Patty (Nina Arianda) hope to use the power of Big Pharma to buy justice, but loyalties are tested when Patty feels Billy may be using her because she got a new job at a prestigious white-shoe law firm in San Francisco. Billy is also still reeling from chronic pain due to the attack he endured last season.
