Tv Season Info

The second season of American Crime is set in the U.S. Midwest -- representative of the canvas that is America -- at two high schools, one public and one private. Issues of sexual orientation and socioeconomic disparity come to a boil when lurid photos of a high school boy, Taylor Blaine, are posted on social media following a school party. Circumstances become more complicated when Taylor accuses two players on an elite private high school's championship basketball team, Kevin LaCroix and Eric Tanner, of drugging, assaulting and then posting the pictures of him online. --(C) ABC

Critic Reviews for American Crime: Season 2

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (20)

John Ridley's American Crime is one of television's most underrated shows, and one of its most consistently engaging on an artistic level.

January 6, 2016 | Full Review…

American Crime will again remind viewers that there is no justice. There is no way to win... Whether or not you believe that is up to you, but I'd be hard-pressed to see how exemplifying the worst of society is meant to better it.

January 6, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Combined with Ridley's unblinkingly intimate cinematic style... this is uncomfortable television about uncomfortable topics. And we could use more of it.

January 6, 2016 | Rating: A | Full Review…

You're left with an unsettling feeling that even when the truth does surface the story won't be tied up with a neat little bow as it would be in so many other crime dramas on television.

January 6, 2016 | Full Review…

American Crime returns... with a fresh story and relevant concerns probing a range of American blind spots. The topical, Emmy-nominated anthology on ABC continues to feel like an artful work of premium cable.

January 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Riveting from the first minute, with stellar, resonant performances driving a story with a high fiber content. American Crime doesn't flinch -- or preach. But it does teach in ways that send it to the head of the class of 2016.
