ABC Renews 'Will Trent' for Season 2

ABC has today renewed its original drama series Will Trent for a second season. The drama will return as part of the broadcast network's upcoming 2023-24 schedule.

The drama stars Ramón Rodríguez, Erika Christensen, Iantha Richardson, Jake McLaughlin and Sonja Sohn.

Liz Heldens and Daniel Thomsen developed the drama based on the series of novels by Karin Slaughter. All three executive produce with Oly Obst and Paul McGuigan. 20th Television and 3 Arts Entertainment produce.

The eleventh episode of the drama's first season titled "Bill Black" airs tonight at 10/9c. The season will then air its finale on Tuesday, May 2 at 10/9c. New episodes are released the following day on Hulu.

"We're so thankful to our ABC and Hulu fans for joining us on this wild ride and watching Will Trent," said Rodríguez. "When we set out to bring the series to television screens, we wanted to do justice to the gritty, thrilling world that Karin Slaughter created with her bestselling book series. Liz Heldens, Dan Thomsen and the creative team have developed complex and nuanced characters that people are relating to on a human level - and it hasn't hurt having our little star, Betty, on the call sheet. We're so excited for the opportunity to dive deeper into these stories with season two."
