Hayley Atwell’s ‘Conviction’ Will End on ABC After 13 Episodes

Network will produce all 13 episodes of legal drama


ABC’ Hayley Atwell-led legal drama “Conviction” has not been picked up for additional episodes, TheWrap has learned.

The network will still produce all 13 episodes which had been previously ordered. The show’s sixth episode is set to air on Monday, Nov. 14, and it remains unclear whether or not the series will continue to air in its Monday night time slot.

The cancellation follows the network’s decision last month to trim the episode order for “Notorious,” the freshman drama starring Piper Perabo and Daniel Sunjata.

“Conviction,” from co-creators Liz Friedman and Liz Friedlander, tells the story of Carter Morrison (Atwell), the brilliant but ne’er-do-well daughter of a former president, who is blackmailed into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit.

She and her team of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts work together to examine cases where there’s credible suspicion that the wrong person may have been convicted of a crime.

Atwell was also the star of ABC’s short-lived Marvel series “Agent Carter,” which lasted just two nine-episode seasons.
