ABC announced today that For The People has been renewed for a second season. One of Shondaland's new entries for 2017-2018, the legal drama premiered in March with a 10-episode run.

Through its first eight episodes, the hour-long series hasn't made much of an impact in the ratings. In its 10:00pm time slot on Tuesday nights, it regularly falls behind its competition by a significant margin.

For The People takes place in and around the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Known as The Mother Court, it is home to some of the most high-profile cases in the country. Here, a group of talented young lawyers working on opposite sides of the law spend their days tackling these high-stakes federal cases.
