While the news is not official, it seems the Conviction and Notorious TV shows are cancelled after just one season each, on ABC. The network’s press site has removed both TV series from its list of primetime shows, which makes it clear there will be no season two for either drama. In addition, previously accessible press releases, videos, and photography are no longer available for these shows.
Conviction centers on attorney Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), who joins the Conviction Integrity Unit to keep her cocaine bust a secret. The ABC cast also includes: Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, and Daniel Franzese.
Notorious tells the story of attorney Jake Gregorian (Daniel Sunjata) and TV producer Julia George (Piper Perabo). Kate Jennings Grant, Aimee Teegarden, J. August Richards, Sepideh Moafi, Ryan Guzman, and Kevin Zegers also star.
Notorious and Conviction Cancelled by ABC
If and when ABC makes the Conviction cancellation and/or the Notorious cancellation official, we’ll let you know. But for now, it seems pretty certain these TV shows are cancelled, not renewed for season two.
A Look at the Ratings
In season one Conviction averaged a 0.65 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.574 million viewers.
The first season of Notorious did a little bit better, but not enough to justify a renewal, considering shows tend to shed viewers as they age. It averaged a 0.86 in the demo, with an average total audience of 3.972 million.
Compare these ratings against the other ABC TV shows we’re tracking.

Bring back notorious that was an awesome show!! But yet you keep stupid shows like bachelorette and bachelor and leave people who love shows like notorious with never knowing an ending it always stuck on a cliffhanger. Sick of A BC Starting a new show and not finishing it extremely angry!

I watched Notorious and Conviction and enjoyed both immensely. Clever writing, interesting characters and stories. PLEASE bring them back!!
Not happy that either of the shows were cancelled. I loved them both. And love doubt as well. What’s wrong with ABC, are they stupid….
Conviction is one of the best tv shows in a long time. Right up there with Law & Order and CSI. It talks about subject matter that we should be discussing. Tough on crime doesn’t not mean pin anyone for the crime. Please bring Convictiin back.
