Accused season 2 plot

While specific storylines for season 2 are yet to be revealed, the heart of this crime anthology lies in its captivating portrayal of defendants entangled in the complexities of their trials. The official synopsis for Accused reads:

"“Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, each episode opens in a courtroom on the defendant, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances, and how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others – forever.”"
