‘Trial & Error’ Season 2 Preview: Photos, Cast and Plot Details

Season two of NBC’s half-hour comedy Trial & Error will premiere on July 19, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. Season one starred John Lithgow as a professor who had a habit of incriminating himself in his wife’s murder whenever he opened his mouth. Season two, which goes by the new title of Trial & Error: Lady, Killer, focuses on Kristin Chenoweth’s character who’s accused of murdering her husband.

In support of the new season’s July premiere, NBC’s debuted new photos and a trailer for the second season which brings back Nicholas D’Agosto as Josh Segal, Jayma Mays as Carol Anne, Steven Boyer as Dwayne, and Sherri Shepherd as Anne. In addition to Kristin Chenoweth, season two will feature Amanda Payton and Lauren McGibbon.

Trial & Error was created by Jeff Astrof and Matt Miller. Astrof, Miller, and director Jeffrey Blitz executive produce the comedy.

The Plot: In the spirit of true crime documentaries, the second season of this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy centers on bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D’Agosto), still relatively a newcomer in a tiny Southern town, who is sturdily posed for his next big case there. His mission? To defend the eccentric first lady of East Peck, Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kristin Chenoweth), known for her flamboyant outfits, large hats and hairless cat, and who suddenly finds herself accused of the bizarre murder of her beloved husband.

As Josh continues to settle into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop while working with his quirky team of local misfits, he suspects that winning his second big case this time should be easy (especially when his client is the town favorite), but is it?
