Jury Duty has change into an enormous hit for Amazon Freevee. The government producers of the collection, David Bernad and Todd Schulman, assume the idea behind the collection is ‘infinitely repeatable.’ So there’s a good likelihood the collection could also be renewed for a second season.
Season one of many docu-comedy stars James Marsden, Alan Barinholtz, Susan Berger, Cassandra Blair, David Brown, Kirk Fox, Ross Kimball, Pramode Kumar, Trisha LaFache, Mekki Leeper, Brandon Loeser, Edy Modica, Rashida “Sheedz” Olayiwola, Kerry O’Neill, Whitney Rice, Maria Russell, Ishmel Sahid, Ben Seaward, Ron Song, and Evan Williams. The season follows a jury trial the place everyone seems to be an actor apart from one jury member, a photo voltaic contractor from California named Ronald Gladden, who believes he’s collaborating in an precise trial.
Bernad stated the next about persevering with the Amazon Freevee collection, per Variety:
“ONE OF THE INITIAL PREMISES OF THE SHOW WAS IT IS A JURY TRIAL, BUT WE SOLD IT AS EVERY DAY YOU’RE ON TRIAL, EVERY DAY YOU’RE CONFRONTED WITH SITUATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE A DECISION. THE SHOW’S VERY SPECIFICALLY BUILT WHERE EVERY EPISODE SOMEONE BRINGS A PREMISE TO RONALD AND IT’S RONALD DECIDING HOW HE’S GOING TO INTERACT. ALL THOSE [BITS] WERE FOR THE IDEA, “CAN YOU THEN GIVE [RONALD] THE CONFIDENCE TO THEN BE THE HERO IN EPISODE 7?” I FEEL WE WILL TAKE THAT VERY SAME THEME AND PREMISE AND APPLY IT TO DIFFERENT AREAS EXTERIOR OF A JURY TRIAL.”
Schulman additionally spoke in regards to the recognition of Jury Duty:
“ONE OF THE REASONS MAYBE THE SHOW HAS RESONATED WITH PEOPLE IS IT’S ALL TOO RARE TO SEE BEING A GOOD PERSON CELEBRATED. I THINK THAT’S AN INFINITELY REPEATABLE CORE CONCEPT, THAT CORE ELEMENT OF THE SHOW WE CAN DO AGAIN POTENTIALLY IN OTHER WORLDS. I DO THINK THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES, BUT WE HAVEN’T GOTTEN TOO DEEP INTO THAT YET.”
Jury Duty has not but been formally renewed by Amazon Freevee.
