Boston Legal Season 6 is a lawful comedy-drama series and is an extension of the renowned series ‘ the practice’. It is a show far from the reality of the legal world and the actual workings of a case and the courtroom. This dramatically humorous show, despite being unrealistic, takes a powerful political stance through its many courtroom monologues which are extremely binge-watchable.
Among the many legally affiliated dramas, Boston legal is also written by David E. Kelley, who himself is a former lawyer. Kelley produced this series with 20th Century Fox Television for the ABC channel. Being from Boston, Kelley has based this show in Boston and filmed it at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, California.

Boston Legal Season 6 Plot
The series mainly revolves around a lawyer named Alan Shore. Alan is a fresh breath of a character who despite having strong morals and a sense of justice is not afraid to sometimes cross into the field of dishonesty and adopt ways that may not be legally apt, all for the greater good. He can be said to be the show’s backbone with his distinctive personality and ideology.
The first season of the show is pretty much a re-edit of the pilot series- the practice. It introduces us to lawyer Alan Shore and gives us some insights in his personality as well as his cases. It starts with Alan working at a firm named Crane, Poole & Schmidt, named after its founding partners. At the end of the pilot series, Crane takes over as one of the partners of this firm and continues with that in this series as well.
One of the major aspects of Boston Legal is its witty and exhausting courtroom scenes where most of the villains are made fun of with the help of the brilliant humor provided by Denny Crane particularly in his dementia-ridden state.
Boston Legal Season 6 Characters
The show’s most loved, awaited and primary relationship is between Alan and his mentor turned best friend Denny Crane. Crane, a remarkable and conceivably the best lawyer of the series, is an eccentric and clownish character who is suffering from the early stages of dementia. Even though Alan and Crane are two people with different ideologies and ways of functioning, their chemistry as characters is notably entertaining.
Another important relationship that while it lasted, warmed the viewer’s hearts is between Alan and Jerry’s “hands” Espenson. Jerry, in spite of being highly intelligent when it comes to understanding the language of the law, lacks when it comes to communicating with others. He has Asperger’s Syndrome, and possibly Tourette’s Syndrome which makes him somewhat of an unlucky character.
Boston Legal Season 6 Release date
Boston Legal aired for the first time on October 3, 2004, on ABC. It had a critically acclaimed run for 5 seasons and won a significant amount of nominations and awards. But even though it had made a special place in its viewer’s hearts, the ratings started dropping season after season which in the end led to the series getting canceled after season 5. The show with 26 Emmy Awards nominations aired its last episode on December 8, 2008.
Boston legal had a total of 101 episodes over 5 seasons, each season was made up of more than 15 episodes except for Season 5 which had only 13 episodes. Season 5 was not a part of the original production plans for the series, but when the show got canceled, ABC agreed to make one last season for fans as an appetizer for closure. Kelly fought for this one last season as he felt that it deserved a proper ending, which after its successful run, surely did.
Ultimately, after wonders of law-related shows, maybe Kelley lost some of his magic by the end of this series which led to its untimely departure from television. Although, for a lot of the viewers of Boston Legal, its witty, one-of-a-kind, relatable, simply fun to watch characters and a binding storyline, still lives in their hearts and minds.
There have been no further official updates for season 6 of Boston Legal after the show got canceled, leaving the watchers twisted and in a state where they keep trying to figure out what could have happened next.
