American Crime Season 2 Premiere Returns with a New Story
Watch the teaser trailer for Season 2 below:
We're not the only fans of this incredible show: The first season of American Crime was recently nominated for 3 Golden Globes, and Regina King, who will be returning in Season 2, won the 2015 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for her portrayal of Aliyah Shadeed in Season 1. The show is considered an "anthology series," where each season is its own distinct story with a distinct set of characters. So while you will see familiar faces from Season 1, like Golden Globe Nominee Felicity Huffman, she'll be playing a different character this season -- in this case, Leslie Graham.
