TV show description:
From creator Veena Sud, the Seven Seconds TV show is a crime anthology based on the Russian film, The Major, by writer and director Yuri Bykov.
The first season unfolds in Jersey City, after a white police officer accidentally hits and critically injures Brenton Butler — an African-American teenager. The ensuing cover-up only serves to ignite racially fueled community tensions.
KJ Harper (Ashitey) is a black assistant prosecutor who is assigned to the case. Although she has her own problems, the gravity of this case weighs heavily on her mind. Whoever struck Brenton left the young man in the cold, to suffer and die alone.
Knowing it is important to both the Butler family and the larger community, KJ works closely with Brenton’s mother, Latrice Butler (King). As the case progresses, Latrice comes to understand that there was more going on with her son than either she or her husband, Isaiah (Hornsby), realized. Now, she is completely absorbed by her need to understand the truth of what happened to her child.
Seven Seconds explores the complex, contentious topic of the race relations between law enforcement personnel and the community members they serve. It searches for answers beyond headlines and delves into the impact these incidents have upon everyone involved.
Episode #10 — “A Boy and a Bike”
As the trial edges toward its conclusion, KJ and Fish (Mosley) search for a way to hold the defense accountable, and Brenton’s parents prepare for what’s next. (Courtesy of Netflix)

What do you think? Did you enjoy the Seven Seconds TV series? Did it end at the right time? If it were up to you, would Netflix have cancelled or renewed this TV show for season two?
My family really enjoyed watching the seven seconds tv series, the cast was absolutely amazing, the story line couldnt have been more accurate. This show should have never been canceled
Amazing show! Should’ve never been cancelled!!!
Seven Seconds is the best show on Netflix,I love it, the acting, writing and the cinematography is incredible on this show
Regina king is the epitome of a master of her craft- she is the gold standard for American Television – she is just on point with character she portrays and I can’t watch American tv anymore because she is not in all the shows. This was an awesome series – and it’s a shame that Netflix canceled it but yet they renewed crap like fuller house
Loved the show hope there’s a 2 Nd season. Ended true to life
Please renew!!! I want another season I loved it !
Love this series – It would be such a let-down if we don’t get another season…The show is timely, relevant and oh so good!
I definitely would like to see a second season maybe get Justice for Nadine. the show was very riveting, the acting was amazing.
Hopeful this series will be continued!! We loved it!!! …great cast, acting, plot, suspense – It’s at the top of Netflix series to watch!!!
