Although all 13 episodes of the "Conviction" series is still scheduled to air, there has been no additional episodes ordered and the show and season 2 is not expected to happen. However, Actress Merrin Dungey says she has talked with ABC and said that the show will just do 13 episodes in the first season.
According to E! News, the network's rep has confirmed the news but "Conviction" star Merrin Dungey says otherwise in one of her tweets. "@ABCConviction isn't canceled. We are just doing 13 episodes this season. Trust me, I just spoke 2 ABC press. America, however, may be," she said. A fan then said that if ABC is not renewing the show for a second season, maybe it can continue on another network. The actress also responded to this tweet saying "That's not true at all."
Meanwhile, fans of the series "Agent Carter" are now hoping that Atwell will reprise her role as agent Carter now that "Conviction" has been canceled. It can be remembered that Atwell mentioned before that she is still hoping she can play the character again and she feels like she has never really said goodbye to that character.
Marvel is still such a big part of my career and I suppose my professional family, but I would absolutely not rule out the idea of going back to Peggy at some point, seeing her in other avenues," Atwell said in the interview.
"Conviction" is about Hayes Morrison, played by Atwell, who happens to be the daughter of the former president and is assigned to lead a team to investigate cases that could have been judged wrongly. The show also stars Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, Eddie Cahill, and Shawn Ashmore. Atwell was cast in the series after doing "Agent Carter" that was also canceled after two seasons.
