‘For Life’ Season 2 Preview
Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., a man known for overturning his life-in-prison conviction for a crime he did not commit, For Life is a fictional serialized legal and family drama about an imprisoned man, Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock), who becomes a lawyer litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit.
His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves – his estranged wife (Joy Bryant) and daughter (Tyla Harris) – and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. For Life will also, through the window of his ferocious struggle and complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden (Indira Varma), examine the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems, showing how one person can make a difference when fighting for the truth.
Aaron’s fight continues in season two of For Life as the wrongfully convicted prisoner-turned-litigator and social crusader embarks on a more personal journey. Aaron is motivated by the hope of being reunited with his family and reclaiming a life of freedom to take up the mantle against systemic injustice from outside the prison walls. With continued help from the people who supported him — his family, a wily one-time public defender, Henry Roswell (Timothy Busfield), and his former prison warden, Safiya Masry — Aaron continues his battle, while on probation, against the very political machine that once put him away undeservedly.
When season two premieres, the debut episode is called “Never Stop Fighting” and its description reads, “After nine years of fighting to win his freedom, it’s do or die for Aaron Wallace. As dangerous enemies lurk at Bellmore and Marie faces criminal charges for assisting Aaron in prior cases, Aaron must find a way to gain the upper hand on Maskins.”
Then on November 25, the episode description for “Homecoming” reads, “A newly liberated man, Aaron acclimates to family life outside of prison. As he attempts to help Jamal with his case, Aaron encounters Jamal’s sister who needs legal help of her own. Former nemesis Spencer Richardson proposes an intriguing work opportunity to Aaron and Roswell.”
For Life airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
