Conviction Season 2 Cancelled: Hayley Atwell Fails Again After Marvel’s Agent Carter on ABC?
[Total: 13    Average: 2.7/5]

Conviction, the ABC legal drama has just begun and is already battling with low ratings figures. The series is follows Hayes Morrison (Hayley Atwell), who is the daughter of the former president. She gets trapped for re-examining cases for possible wrongful conviction and is blackmailed. The series is said to have been sold in the European market despite its low-rated premiere.


It is known that Conviction lead star Hayley Atwell’s last ABC series Marvel’s Agent Carter lasted for merely two seasons as mentioned by TV Series Finale. The series was taken off from the network due to poor ratings. And probably, her new series is going to the same direction.

On the contrary to this, international viewers wish to continue with the series as it has gained popularity there. Perhaps that cannot be the only reason to continue with series if the ratings and viewership figures continue to fall.

Conviction is placed at the popular time slot of Castle which was an immensely popular show. Castle continued to rein the ratings charts on the similar time slot. However, the current legal drama is nowhere close to its popularity as of now.

The show also features Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey and Emily Kinney in important roles. It is co-created by Jessica Jones, writer Liz Friedman, and The Following director Liz Friedlander. Grey’s Anatomy and Saving Private Ryan EPs from  Mark Gordon Company have taken the charge of the new legal drama.

The series opened with Morrison’s illegal possession of cocaine and is blackmailed by her former adversary. While the character is liked by fans it simply cannot pull off the series alone, a strong story line and interesting twists are a must.

The next episode is titled as Mother’s Little Burden. It will air on October 24, 2016. Conviction airs on Mondays at 10/9c on ABC.
