Who Will Return For Your Honor Season 2?
Showtime’s legal crime thriller series features an amazing ensemble of fantastic actors that has been one of the highlights of the series. The cast of the series is led by Breaking Bad star Cranston in the role of Michael Desiato. The series also features Hunter Doohan as Adam Desiato, Michael Stuhlbarg as Jimmy Baxter, Hope Davis playing Gina Baxter.
Then we have Sofia Black-D’Elia playing Frannie Latimer, Isiah Whitlock Jr. in the role of Charlie Figaro, and Carmen Ejogo appearing as Lee Delamere. In addition to these prominent cast members, there are several other actors in different roles. Since Showtime has already renewed the series for Your Honor Season 2, most of these main cast members are likely to return to their roles. Meanwhile, as the story expands in season 2, some new characters might come into the picture.
The Worst Thing Michael Desiato Has Done!
In the series Your Honor, Michael Desiato is the embodiment of a desperate father who will go to any lengths possible to save his son. His son has done some morally questionable things in the first season. But some were just more wicked than others. Like when Judge Sarah LeBlanc was assigned to the Carlo Baxter case. With a new judge in charge, Michael knew he won’t be able to sway the outcome of the case. As a result, he has broken his commitment to Jimmy Baxter to sway the case’s conclusion.
Michael did his quick-thinking cap and joined LeBlanc for drinks after work, knowing she’ll have consumed enough alcohol to be somewhat inebriated but way above the legal limit. He then informed the cops, who pulled her over. As a result of her detention, she agreed to resign as a judge and drop the Baxter case temporarily. She subsequently told Michael that she believes someone affected the case, oblivious to the fact that he is the perpetrator.
Why Fans Love Michael Desiato Despite His Flaws?
After his epic performance in Breaking Bad, it’s nearly impossible to dislike any of Bryan Cranston’s characters. It’s even more difficult not to adore Michael Desiato, the character in Your Honor. Michael is an astute judge who can detect deception in witnesses and defendants. He also enjoys getting out of his chair in the courtroom to interrogate witnesses.
Michael plainly wishes that he could go back to being a regular lawyer. Michael is also a devout parent who will go to any length to protect his son. When a cop is about to apprehend him for throwing evidence on a bridge, he pretends to urinate. When questioned about why he is urinating, he claims to have prostate cancer and says, “When it comes, it comes.”
