Accused Season 2 Renewal For FOX Anthology Series – Premiere Date?

Accused has locked a second season on FOX.

The network has renewed the crime anthology for Season 2 following a successful midseason run. The series, produced by Emmy Award-winning executive producer Howard Gordon, has delivered solid metrics since its premiere on January 22.

Some numbers:

  • As the #1 new drama and #1 new series of the season, Accused garnered a 2.5 Live + 35 Day rating and drew in 14.6 million multi-platform viewers, making it the highest-rated drama debut on television in the past two years.
  • The show is an adaptation of the BBC’s BAFTA-winning series and has maintained a strong viewership with an average of 7.5 million multi-platform viewers, which is a remarkable increase of +126% from its Live + Same Day delivery so far this season.

Accused has been joined by fellow midseason drama Alert in gaining an early Season 2 renewal.

FOX said of the renewals:

“Accused and Alert stand out as two of this season’s new broadcast and multi-platform success stories. Looking to 2023-24, we’ll continue to deliver on the powerful storytelling coming from both series, building on our incredible partnership with Sony and further solidifying FOX’s strong slate of dramas, giving our schedule tremendous season-to-season stability.”

The network continued:

With Accused, Howard Gordon has taken the crime anthology to new heights and acclaim, featuring an all-star roster of directors and talent headlining gripping episodes that entertain viewers with a provocative, fresh take on many of the most relevant, timely issues of our day.”

Added producer Sony Pictures Television:

“We are excited to continue our long partnership with FOX to bring more Accused and Alert to audiences around the world. It’s wonderful to see these timely, poignant stories resonating with viewers, and we want to congratulate the writers, producers, cast and crew on their success. We are incredibly proud of their collective work and look forward to seeing where these series go next!”

Accused Season 2 will air in fall 2024.
