Here is everything to know about the upcoming season of For Life, including its cast, plot, release date, and all the other updates.
When will it release and where?
The first season of the show came out on February 11, 2020. It had 13 episodes, with each having a runtime of about 43 minutes, and it aired on ABC Network. ABC Network renewed the series for a second season on June 15, 2020. The second season of For Life will air on November 18, 2020, on ABC Network. Just like the previous season, this season will also premier its episodes weekly. ABC has announced the first three episodes for the season, which will air on November 18, November 25, and December 2 of this year.
The show’s executive producer Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent, stated, “It’s something other than a show, it’s a battle for justice, and we’re keeping the battle up. Isaac Wright Jr confronted the framework and won his opportunity, and now like never before, we have to continue recounting the story inspired by his Life. Maker Hank Steinberg and his group of scholars are prepared to keep investigating and uncovering the blemishes in the system, which is so significant now like never before. I revealed to you it would happen.”
Steinberg continued, “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 incredibly grateful to Sony Pictures Television and ABC for all of their support.”
Who will return, and who are the new faces?
Hank Steinberg will continue the role of creator in the second show as well. Almost the whole cast is reported to reprise their roles for the second season. This includes Nicholas Pinnock as Aaron Wallace, Indira Varma as Safiya Masry, Joy Bryant as Marie Wallace, Dorian Missick as Jamal Bishop, Glenn Fleshler as Frank Foster, Tyla Harris as Jasmine Wallace, Glenn Fleshler as Frank Foster, Boris McGiver as Glen Maskins, and Timothy Busfield as Henry Roswell.
What is the plot of the show?
The show is based on the Life of Issac Wright Jr, who was wrongfully convicted of drug charges in 1991. While imprisoned, he helped overturn 20 of his inmates wrongful convictions before finally proving his innocence. The first season left us on a cliff hanger with Wallance finally getting a chance at a retrial. The next season will continue with his Life ahead after his iconic retrial.
