If not for life then at least or one more season!
ABC’s legal drama series For Life has been renewed for season 2. The drama is from creator Hank Steinberg and Curtis Jackson a.k.a 50 cent.
Curtis Jackson had the following to say about the renewal:
“For Life just got renewed for season two by ABC! It’s more than just a show, it’s a fight for justice and we’re keeping the fight going. Isaac Wright Jr stood up to the system and won his freedom and now more than ever, we need to keep telling the story inspired by his life. Creator Hank Steinberg and his team of writers are ready to continue exploring and exposing the flaws in the system which is so important now more than ever. I told you it would happen.”
Hank Steinberg gave the following comment:
“It has been a profound honor working with Isaac Wright, Jr. and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson to create a show that, through the prism of Isaac’s experience in our broken criminal justice system, has been able to highlight the racial inequality that plagues this country. The show’s renewal will allow us to continue to do that and I am extremely grateful to Sony Pictures Television and ABC for all of their support.”
The show was one of two freshman series waiting on renewal. The other series The Baker and the Beauty has been cancelled.
