Each season of American Crime explores the effects of the legal process within the context of race, gender, and class. Season two focused on the alleged rape of a male high school student (Connor Jessup).
In the interview, Ridley said he doesn’t know if the drama will be picked up for another season:
I don’t know. I was made aware by ABC that they would do some early pickups and I’m not surprised by the shows that got picked up. They’re doing phenomenal. Channing [Dungey], since she’s been at ABC, has been an instrumental part of American Crime from the beginning. Nobody is a bigger fan or supporter. So I’m confident that everything is going to work out the way that it should in the end. I don’t think people can lament the passing of American Crime should it come to pass. I’ve been shooting a pilot for ABC and for another project I’ve been getting ready to go to London for ABC Studios. I haven’t really had a great deal of time to sit and ponder it. I really and sincerely believe that things will happen as they should.”
