No Season 2 for the legal drama.
May 11, 2019
It is being reported that Fox has cancelled Proven Innocent after one season. The news comes one day after the legal drama aired its freshman finale, which will now act as its series-ender.
The show premiered in February as a mid-season entry but never really gained any traction. Critical reception was decidedly mixed and it struggled to garner a sizable amount of viewers.
Proven Innocent follows Madeline Scott, the head of an underdog criminal defence firm who is on a mission to set innocent people free, as she was once in the same situation. While she may be a hero to some, Madeline's bold tactics are not appreciated by Gore Bellows, the prosecutor who once secured her conviction and still believes in her guilt. But despite Bellows' incessant quest to see her locked up, Madeline puts her energy towards defending others, even while fighting to maintain her innocence and possibly find the real killer in her own case.

I never liked it. I don't like Kelsey Grammar, but that was not all. I never liked the plot lines.

I liked this show, Fox always cancel the good shows, but keep that stupid Simpsons.

Wow, first Cool Kids now this one? Really FOX? I really liked this show. But at least they brought it to a great conclusion.

Boooo...this is, of COURSE, because I LOVED this show! Whatever....

This show was a waste of good talent stuck in a completely unbelievable plot. Good riddance.

If they would have left the silly making fun of Trump stuff out , I would have watched it for more than 2 episodes.
Good cast, horrible bitter writing!
When will they learn to drop all the 1 sided political jabs, you are alienating a significant following!

At least they finished to a logical conclusion. The next season could have featured more of their cases with them also trying to get Bellows who served up a little Vigilante Justice while covering his own six from threats. OK on to the next new show.

Damn it! Guess I try to watch too much tv because I always see premiere and say "oh I like this, so it is going to be cancelled". I am going to try reverse psychology and hate the show out loud and maybe it won't be cancelled.

I'm very surprised by a lot of the previous comments. I like Rachelle Lafevre. I actually originally tuned in because of her casting. I like the title Proven Innocent. Despite the fact that in trials there is no such thing as innocent, in a show like this when the actual perpetrator is often found, that does make someone else actually innocent in my mind at least. I didn't even notice the show as being preachy other then on the obvious topic of wrongful convictions. I quit Roswell, New Mexico for political writing, but I loved Proven Innocent. It is strange as I rarely find so many comments that have specific topics that I disagree with.
Wrongful convictions seem to be inherently difficult to have as a topic for tv shows. They need to have something else. If not, we expect the outcome every single week to be "the truth" coming out. I hoped the Madeline vs Gore conflict would be enough. Apparently it wasn't. I also thought Conviction from a couple of years ago had solved that problem by having the President's wild daughter head a team to review cases that didn't necessarily have the wrong person convicted, but they cancelled that too.
I'll miss Proven Innocent. I looked forward to it.
