Later this summer, Disney’s Onyx Collective is releasing the second season of the original series, “Reasonable Doubt”, which is about Jax Stewart, who is known to be the most brilliant and fearless defence attorney in Los Angeles. She bucks the justice system at every chance she gets, and she’s judged for her questionable ethics and wild interpretations of the law until she’s needed.

After trying to heal from her wounds from last season’s arduous trial and deadly affair, Jax Stewart is attempting to get her life back on track. That is until one of her closest friends reveals that she has killed her husband. Her friend is claiming self-defence, but an uncompromising prosecutor thinks otherwise. Needing all the help she can get, Jax brings in an ambitious defence attorney to lead the case, but things get tense very quickly. Can Jax defend her friend, save her marriage and protect her energy while being catapulted into the biggest case of her career? Or will she lose it all?

Disney has previously announced that the show will star Emayatzy Corinealdi, Kandi Burruss, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Morris Chestnut, McKinley Freeman, Tim Jo, Angela Grovey, Aderinsola Olabode and Thaddeus J. Mixson.

Deadline has revealed that Essence Atkins, Melissa Ponzio and Vaughn W. Hebron will also star in the series.

Essence Atkins will play Dr. Brandy Michaels. She is an expert on domestic violence, which is abundantly clear when she is on the stand, pointedly explaining to the court how many victims stay in abusive relationships.  Essence has previously starred in “First Wives Club” and “Smart Guy”.

Melissa Ponzio will portray Lucy Wargo, a new District Attorney who’s just come to Los Angeles from Las Vegas. By-the-book, officious, Lucy is extremely ambitious and driven, but hides those qualities behind an icy determination to do the right thing. Melissa Ponzio has previously starred in “Chicago Fire” and “Teen Wolf”.

Vaughn W. Hebron will play Adrian Hunter. An NFL player and the late JT’s mentee, he assists Jax in going through his mentor’s memorabilia and affixing price tags to items.  Vaughn has previously starred in “The Oval” and “The Game”.


“Reasonable Doubt” is created, written and executive produced by Raamla Mohamed. Kerry Washington executive-produces alongside Pilar Savone for Simpson Street, Larry Wilmore via Wilmore Films, and Anton Cropper. Shawn Holley, Jon Leshay, Tamara Gregory, Lena Cordina, TASH Gray and Resheida Brady serve as co-executive producers. The series hails from Onyx Collective and is produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios.
