A second season of “UnPrisoned” is coming to Hulu, Variety has confirmed.
Starring and executive produced by Kerry Washington, “UnPrisoned” follows messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom, Paige Alexander (Washington) whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son. Delroy Lindo stars as Edwin Alexander, Paige’s father, who has recently been released from prison.

Additionally, Washington has renewed her overall deal with ABC Signature for another three years. Under the terms of the deal, she will produce broadcast, cable and streaming projects for ABC Signature through her Simpson Street banner which has been with Disney Television Studios since its 2016 launch.
In addition to Washington, the series is executive produced by Tracy McMillan, Yvette Lee Bowser and Pilar Savone, through Washington’s Simpson Street banner, and Lindo. Joy Gorman Wettels and Jen Braeden also executive produce. Onyx Collective backs the production, which is produced by ABC Signature.
Washington also executive produces Onyx Collective’s “Reasonable Doubt” and directed the show’s pilot episode. The series was renewed for a second season in April.
“I’m really proud that Onyx Collective exists and I’m proud to be a part of it. I think uplifting voices of people of color is so important and obviously relevant for who I am. I’m just thrilled to be a part of expanding inclusivity of the Disney ecosystem,” Washington said of her relationship with Onyx Collective at the “UnPrisoned” premiere in March.
Deadline was first to report this news.
