What’s This TV Show About?
An FX anthology drama centering on the Getty Oil family dynasty, Trust stars Donald Sutherland as J. Paul Getty Sr., Michale Esper as J. Paul Getty Jr., Harris Dickinson as John Paul Getty III, Hilary Swank as Gail Getty, and Brendan Fraser as James Fletcher Chace. The story kicks off in 1973, in Rome, when the Italian mafia kidnaps young heir John Paul Getty III. Due to their hostage’s pedigree, the kidnappers expect a handsome ransom, but they never anticipated how this family’s issues would complicate their plot. While grandfather J. Paul Getty is ensconced in the English countryside, and the boy’s father, J. Paul Getty Jr., is lost in a London fog of his own making, John Paul’s mother, Gail, is left to negotiate with her son’s abductors, and she’s flat broke.
Season One Ratings
Will FX cancel or renew Trust for season two? Though the ratings are quite low, I think it will score a season two renewal. FX certainly cancels some shows after one season. Take The Bastard Executioner, for example. Usually, though it has some patience and gives its series time to take root.
Now, unlike the American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and Feud anthologies, future potential seasons of Trust will continue to focus on the Getty family, so it won’t make a completely clean break, between seasons. That said, its subjects have a long, storied history, which will provide many opportunities starting anew, if and when a season fails to resonate with the audience. Since this is all just speculation, for now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Trust cancellation or renewal alerts.
Update: FX Has not renewed the Trust TV show for a second season.
