‘Will Trent’ Earns Season 3 Renewal at ABC

ABC is putting another building block in place for its 2024-25 season.

The broadcast network has renewed its drama series Will Trent for a third season. The crime procedural’s second season has capably anchored ABC’s Tuesday night lineup this spring, showing sizable ratings growth compared to its inaugural run last year.

Produced by Disney’s 20th Television, Will Trent centers on its title character (Ramón Rodríguez), a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent whose unconventional background — he was raised in Atlanta’s overwhelmed foster care system — gives him unique insight into his cases. The show is based on a series of novels by Karin Slaughter; Sonja Sohn, Erika Christensen, Iantha Richardson and Jake McLaughlin also star.

Liz Heldens, Daniel Thomsen, Slaughter and Oly Obst executive produce the series, with Rodríguez serving as a co-exec producer.

The series is averaging 4.47 million same-day viewers this season, a 46 percent jump over its 2023 run, and available seven-day linear ratings have the show up by about 13 percent year to year. ABC also says that including streaming on Hulu and other multi-platform viewing, Will Trent has grown each week since its Feb. 20 premiere and recently hit a series high of 9 million viewers with a week of cross-platform viewing.

Will Trent joins fellow dramas 911 and Grey’s Anatomy and comedy Abbott Elementary in scoring renewals for 2024-25 on ABC. The network also has two new series on tap: 2023 holdover High Potential from Drew Goddard and the Ryan Murphy-produced Dr. Odyssey, starring Joshua Jackson.
