Taking the #1 spot from Ozark is the hit Netflix series 

It was inevitable that a new Netflix series would knock Ozark off Netflix's Top 10 rankings of US shows sooner or later. And now we know which new title wins that honor. 

The Lincoln Lawyer is a new legal drama based on Michael Connelly's book series of the same name. 

May 13 marked the release of the show's ten-episode first season on Netflix, starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as the titular lawyer.

The show topped US Netflix TV on Monday, May 16. As a result, Ozark dropped to #2. 

A law firm ran out of the back seat of a Lincoln is run by an iconoclastic idealist, Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), as he takes on cases large and small across Los Angeles.

Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, and Angus Sampson are also featured in the series." Moreover, Connelly himself worked as a writer and executive producer.

Netflix picks up the show with the second book in the series because Connelly's readers are pretty loyal. In other words, they already know the world and characters. 

A lot of them have probably also seen Matthew McConaughey's 2011 movie The Lincoln Lawyer. That's why Connelly wanted to give fans something new rather than a sequel.
