When Amazon studios made the official announcement of season 4, they said Goliath Season 4 is the last season. Executive producer Vernon Sanders revealed the news of the last season. He thanked the cast members Billy Bob, Larry, Geyer, Jennifer, Steve, and the entire Goliath team for the success of the series. Overall he was thankful for everything about the show. In conclusion, we can only speculate. Maybe the writers didn’t want to increase seasons and episodes without reason. They wanted to end the series around a well-developed plot and thrill. The last two seasons of the show received diverse views from the critics and the audience. The rating for the last two seasons was reduced by some values. So maybe the producers thought it was not a good idea to continue the show. In the end, the fans have to wait and be content with Goliath Season 4.
