Accused has been officially renewed and fans won’t have to wait long for the new season to arrive. More details below:
Developed by Howard Gordon, Accused is a 2023 American crime drama television series heavily inspired by the 2010s British anthology TV series created by Jimmy McGovern of the same name. The series was released on January 22nd, 2023, on Fox.
Upon release, the series immediately received massive love and support from fans around the world. The confirmation announcement for season two did not come as a surprise to many fans as the crime drama series opened with a high 2.0 rating in the 18 to 49 spectator demographic and accumulated 8.4 million spectators live the exact day. It then rose to over 11 million multiplatform viewers and a 2.3 rating in just 3 fats after the series launch. Accused became the broadcast’s highest-rated debut in almost two years, since the launch of NBC’s Law & Order: Organized Crime back in 2021.
Following the renewal announcement, Michael Thorn, President, Scripted Programming at Fox said in a statement:
“With Accused, Howard Gordon has taken the crime anthology to new heights and acclaim, featuring an all-star roster of directors and talent headlining gripping episodes that entertain viewers with a provocative, fresh take on many of the most relevant, timely issues of our day.”
Fox greenlit the series for season two in March 2023.
