The cast won’t be back but the show title will be. ABC has decided to renew their low-rated anthology series, American Crime, for a second season. The show currently airs on Thursday nights.
On the first season of American Crime, a home invasion in Modesto, California results in the murder of war veteran Matt Skokie and a horrific assault on his wife Gwen. Four suspects are brought into custody for the crimes. Though the suspects and the victims fit a profile, they and their situations are far more complicated than anyone would have initially believed. The cast includes Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, W. Earl Brown, Richard Cabral, Caitlin Gerard, Benito Martinez, Penelope Ann Miller, Elvis Nolasco, Johnny Ortiz, and Regina King.
The series debuted in early March to positive ratings but they quickly eroded. Last week saw the series hit a new series low with a 0.9 rating and 3.63 million viewers. Despite a disappointing season of ratings, ABC is bringing American Crime back for a second season — with a new cast and storyline.
What do you think? Have you been watching American Crime? Did ABC make the right decision or should they have cancelled the show instead?
I have never seen such a terrific show on network TV. I pray ABC does not give in and cancel it. Rich characters, exciting plot, never a dull moment. Its ‘fresh’ TV. ABC – give it a better lead in and promote the show more heavily. It gets ‘lost’ b/c the network starts in the middle of the year and therefore, does not get the publicity it deserves. There is no better network show on Television.
I love this show!! Please don’t take it away.
This show is so amazing to me. I started watching the show when it premiered for it’ first season and was compelled to watch and follow the storyline with all it twist and turns. I fell in love with complexities of the characters and how society fees and cast various stereotypes on different races of people but, also the compassion in the writing which had me in it’s spell for the whole season one. I was so excited that a second season was was given. Some of he best acting on television and a phenomenal cast. Please don’t leave me… Read more »
