The legal drama follows attorney Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), the daughter of a former President, who gets “blackmailed” into examining possible wrongful convictions. The cast also includes Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, and Daniel Franzese.
Conviction has widely been considered cancelled since it ended its first season earlier this year. First, ABC decided not to order additional episodes of the freshman drama. Then, season one earned poor ratings, averaging a 0.65 in the 18-49 demo and only 3.57 million viewers. Unfortunately, it looks like this legal drama just failed to catch on.
This is Atwell’s second ABC series to be cancelled. Marvel’s Agent Carter lasted for two seasons and 18 episodes.
