The verdict is finally in. NBC has renewed its Trial & Error TV show for a second season of 10 episodes. Writers Jeff Astrof and Matt Miller executive produce the comedy along with director Jeffrey Blitz. Expect Trial & Error, season two, to premiere mid-season.
The first season of Trial & Error stars Nicholas D’Agosto, John Lithgow, Krysta Rodriguez, Steven Boyer, Jayma Mays, and Sherri Shepherd. The NBC sitcom centers on newly-minted NYC lawyer Josh Segal (D’Agosto). In season one, Josh had to defend the eccentric, “rollercizing” poetry professor, Larry Henderson (Lithgow).
Trial & Error creators Astrof and Miller said, back in January, that they are approaching the crime spoof as an anthology series. This makes sense, as Larry’s trial is over. According to Deadline, everyone from the season one cast is returning, except for Lithgow.
Last week, NBC Chair Bob Greenblatt said he was hoping to have good news about the Warner Bros. sitcom.
Trial & Error: A Look at the Ratings
The first season of Trial & Error averaged a 0.92 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.86 million viewers. When you compare its ratings to those of other NBC TV shows, the renewal is a bit of a surprise, but the Peacock Network must have faith in it.
