It's official! Accused is renewed for season two!
Renewed for Season 2!
Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, ACCUSED is a collection of 15 intense, topical and exquisitely human stories of crime and punishment. Each episode is a fast-paced, provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast.
Every show opens on a defendant in a courtroom, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the accused’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances, and how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others – forever.
Developed by Howard Gordon (“Homeland,” “24”) and executive-produced by Gordon, Alex Gansa (“Homeland,” “24”) and David Shore (“House,” “The Good Doctor”), ACCUSED features cinematic auspices and production values is anchored by Oscar and Emmy-winning talent.
Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale (The Americans) and Emmy Award nominee Molly Parker (House of Cards) will star in a gripping episode tackling conspiracy theories. Rachel Bilson (The O.C.) and Jack Davenport (The Morning Show) star in a thrilling episode with a family caught in a troubling situation. Reid Miller and August Maturo also star in the episode alongside Bilson and Davenport. Acclaimed Broadway star, J. Harrison Ghee (Kinky Boots) will appear in the Billy Porter-directed episode about a drag queen’s affair and its aftermath.
