Will Trent season 2: Plot, release window, and more

Dive in to find out about the Will Trent season 2 potential release date, and what lies ahead for our favorite characters.

Published onFebruary 13, 2024

Most cop shows give us squeaky-clean heroes who catch the bad guys by the book. Will Trent is definitely not that. This guy has a knack for chaos — he’s awkward and inappropriate, but somehow always gets the job done.

Equal parts sharp wit and high stakes, Will Trent evokes the easy momentum of Monk while showcasing the chilling crimes of Criminal Minds. But Will’s got his own style.

Read on to find out the Will Trent season 2 release date and everything else we know so far.

Has Will Trent been renewed for season 2?

Yes, ABC officially confirmed the renewal of Will Trent for its second season in April 2023, following the success of the first season.

When does Will Trent season 2 start?

Will Trent season 2 is premiering on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 at 8 pm CST.

What to expect from season 2 of Will Trent?

In the upcoming season of Will Trent, there’ll be more mysteries and murders, more conflicts, and some definite progress on Will’s quest to find his mother.

One of the main story arcs that the second season will explore revolves around Angie Polaski. After the shocking events of the first season, where Angie possibly faced paralysis following an attack, her recovery, and its implications will be at the forefront.

This storyline will also focus on Angie’s relationship with Will. However, a lot of whodunit shows do show quick recoveries. We don’t know what will happen, but it could be that we see Angie make a quick recovery after that scare and get back in the game.

Onto Will’s quest to find his mother, he now has her name and photograph. Very useful artifacts when it comes to tracking someone down. Again, we’re reminded of Patrick Jane looking for Red John while solving murders simultaneously, albeit that was a lot darker.

What is characteristic of shows like this is a steady stream of single-episode mysteries. Despite the central storyline, this is always our favorite part of crime thrillers. Given that the show is based on Karin Slaughter’s series of novels, there’s a wealth of source material that can be adapted to provide a blend of intense investigations and character-driven narratives.
