On Guilt, a young woman is brutally murdered in her London flat and the search for her killer leads to scandal and intrigue. Her roommate, Grace (Daisy Head), becomes the prime suspect in the murder case and a popular target for the press and in social media. Grace’s sister, Natalie (Emily Tremaine), leaves her life in Boston and heads to London to defend her — along with an ethically questionable lawyer (Billy Zane). The rest of the cast includes Cristian Solimeno, Naomi Ryan, Kevin Ryan, Simona Brown, Zachary Fall, and Sam Cassidy.
The series debuted in June to just a 0.16 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 486,000 viewers. The numbers dropped much lower during the 10 episode run, hitting a 0.08 in the demo with 245,000 viewers. The ratings rose toward the end of the season but the numbers were still quite low when compared to the rest of Freeform’s scripted series.
The final episode of Guilt aired on August 22nd. Hopefully the writers will share what they had in mind for the second season.
