Onyx Collective’s scripted series “Reasonable Doubt” has been renewed for a second season. Morris Chestnut (The Best Man) will board the cast as a series regular in Season 2, Deadline reports.
According to the outlet, Chestnut is set to play Corey Cash, a charming, media-savvy defense attorney who often represents the underdogs. When Jax brings in Corey to help on a new high-profile case, she soon realizes that he’s more shine than substance and threatening her position at the firm.
In “Reasonable Doubt,” you’ll judge Jax Stewart for her questionable ethics and wild interpretations of the law … until you’re the one in trouble. Then you’ll see her for what she is: the most brilliant and fearless defense attorney in Los Angeles who bucks the justice system at every chance she gets.
“Reasonable Doubt” stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, McKinley Freeman, Tim Jo, Angela Grovey, Thaddeus J. Mixson, Aderinsola Olabode and Michael Ealy.
Raamla Mohamed serves as creator, writer and executive producer alongside Kerry Washington and Pilar Savone for Simpson Street, and Larry Wilmore via Wilmore Films. Shawn Holley and Jon Leshay are co-executive producers in addition to Pete Chatmon and Will McDonald. Tamara Gregory, Roger M. Bobb and JoAnne McCool also produce. “Reasonable Doubt” is produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios.
Season 1 of the series is now streaming on Hulu in the US and also on Disney+ in many countries including Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
