‘For The People’ Renewed For Season 2 By ABC

Shondaland drama For the People has been renewed for a second season.

The series, from creator/executive producer Paul Williams Davies, debuted March 13 as a midseason replacement in ABC’s very challenging Tuesday 10 Pm slot, which has claimed a slew of short-lived drama series, and survived. It had a somewhat rocky road before launch, with production halted in September for additional script working after Britt Robertson and Jasmin Savoy Brown were recast as the leads. They took over for the pilot’s stars Britne Oldford and Lyndon Smith, respectively.

Written by Davies, For the People is set in the Southern District of New York Federal Court, aka “The Mother Court,” and followed new lawyers working for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high-profile and high-stakes cases in the country – all as their personal lives intersect.

For The People Season 1 Episode 5 Review: World's Greatest Judge

Judge Byrne is one of the good ones. 

On For The People Season 1 Episode 5, the judge was forced to make some big decisions that had the potential to make or break his career. 

It was clear from the get-go that Nicholas was going to be at the forefront of the hour, and I was totally fine with that. 

Being a new series, I get the need for some of the secondary characters to be established. The case was laughable, and I immediately sided with Nicholas about it. 

But that wasn't enough for the case to be thrown out. There are laws in place for a reason, and while Nicholas did not want to send a man to jail for ten years for carrying 57 grams of Class A drugs, he had to.

For The People Season 1 Episode 3 Review: 18 Miles Outside of Roanoke

For The People is quickly becoming one of the best legal dramas on television. 

On For The People Season 1 Episode 3, Kate and Sandra went head-to-head in the courtroom, Allison took on a judge who was using an algorithm for sentencing, and Leonard continued to be the worst. 

Let's start with Kate and Sandra because every scene that included them going at it was perfection. It was exciting to watch them sizing each other up by hitting Google to find out what they were up against. 

On the surface, they should have hated each other, but you could tell there was the possibility of them becoming friends. 

The case was a conflicting one for Kate because she knew the woman did something wrong by revealing all of the secrets in the manner she did.

So this week, Allison's client is a young black man who is being charged with possession of a firearm. He's a really good kid. He was just trying to defend his little brother who was being confronted by a gang.
