Has Will Trent been renewed for season 2? ABC’s Will Trent is a smart, effective, and personal rendition of the troubled cop genre. Its ailing genius protagonist, played by Ramon Rodriguez, is more than just a brilliant investigator. His character is a complex mix of emotions. He shows vulnerability and angst against what happened to him and his teenhood sweetheart Angie, played by Erika Christensen. Will Trent is a unique television character, with relatively nothing too straightforward or obvious about him, unlike usual stereotypes. The ABC show offers plenty of other outlets to explore everyday themes in original and refreshing plot outlines.

The season 1 finale of Will Trent is due on May 2. In this piece, we discuss the renewal/cancellation status of the show. Being a thoroughbred network show, it is often tricky to call whether or not another season will be greenlit. Here is what we know about a possible season 2 of ABC’s Will Trent.

What is Will Trent Season 1 about?

Will Trent has an anthology format where the case changes in every episode. The investigators remain the same and operate in two teams: Will, Faith Mithcell (Iantha Richardson), and Angie and Michael (Jake McLaughlin). Because the narrative depth of the cases of the former pair is relatively more, most of the episode goes into covering their investigation. Will and Angie are foster children who have been friends since their foster days. They have always looked out for each other and know literally everything about themselves. Their relationship often oscillates between moments of love and hate.

Will somewhat shares the volatility in his dynamic with Angie in his equation with Faith. Even though the two have warmed up to each other by now, occasional heat surfaces. Until now, most cases have covered a spectrum of topics, including cyber attacks, traditional witchcraft, and greed for money. In the backdrop of the cases, the characters also resolve personal issues to become more mature people and spend more time discovering who they really are.
