Following a successful freshman season run, Will Trent season 2 sees the smart and offbeat special agent back to crack some of the toughest cases in Georgia. 

Based on Karin Slaughter's New York Times bestselling Will Trent series, the show has been nothing short of a hit for ABC, even becoming the number one new drama on the network. While following The Rookie on TV has definitely helped in its ratings, the captivating storylines and plot twists of Will Trent season 1  on its own have made it stand out among police procedurals. 

Here's everything we know about Will Trent season 2.
