The fate of freshman ABC show Conviction seems to be up in the air with the network’s decision not to order an additional back 9.
The “Back 9” refer to the last 9 episodes of a show’s season which if ordered would give a show a full season especially in the case of most shows that open in the Fall season. It seems that Conviction will air its initial 13 episodes which at this point is a cancellation in all but name but we will see, crazier things have happened so the show could still be renewed in theory.#
Conviction stars Atwell as Carter Morrison, the brilliant but rebel daughter of a former President, who is blackmailed into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit. She, along with her team of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts, work together to examine cases where there’s credible suspicion that the wrong person may have been convicted of a crime.
