One thing we do know is that Will Trent Season 2 is definitely happening. When will the show return on ABC?

We have some great news in the form of Will Trent being renewed for a second season. That news came in ahead of the finale, which aired last night, Tuesday, May 2. So, we know that we’re now beginning the summer hiatus.

This is standard for this time of year. Shows need to take a break for actors to spend time with their families and work on the next season scripts to start. So, how long is this break going to be? This is something we don’t yet have answers to.

Will Trent Season 2 premiere date predictions

ABC hasn’t released its fall schedule just yet. This series was a midseason show for its freshman year, which wasn’t all that surprising. It wasn’t clear what the uptick would be, and ABC would want to pair the series with a couple of other strong shows. It did well on Tuesdays with The Rookie and The Rookie: Feds.

Were the ratings good enough to make it a fall show this year? That is debatable. They were still on the lower side compared to other shows, so we could see it remain in the midseason.

This could be a blessing in disguise. At the time of writing this, the writer’s strike could still happen. This is going to put a lot of projects on hold, and we could see delays in the fall schedule across all networks. If Will Trent is part of the fall schedule, usually we would say a September premiere date, but we may have to wait longer. If it’s held for the midseason, we could see a January 2024 premiere date.
