Fox announced today that Accused has been renewed for a second season. The news comes nine episodes into the anthology drama's freshman run, which is currently airing new episodes on Tuesday nights.

The show has been a solid performer for the network since its January premiere. Its debut episode ranks as television's highest-rated drama debut in two years. Season-to-date, the show is averaging 7.5 million multi-platform viewers.

Based on the BBC's BAFTA-winning crime anthology, Accused explores how a regular person can get caught up in an extraordinary situation, ultimately revealing how one wrong turn leads to another - until it's too late to turn back. Each episode focuses on a different crime in a different city, using an entirely original cast.

Look for Season 2 of Accused during the 2023-2024 season.
