ABC announced today that For Life has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes a month after the legal drama's freshman finale, and makes it the only new show on the network to be returning in 2021.

Inspired by the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., the series follows a wrongly-convicted prisoner serving a life sentence. Determined to fight for his freedom and get back to his family, he studies to become a lawyer while behind bars, litigating cases for fellow inmates while working towards overturning his conviction.

Look for Season 2 of For Life in 2021.
