Your Honor to End With Season 2 on Showtime, Bryan Cranston Says

·2 min read

Your Honor won’t be bending the rule of law much longer. In a new interview, series star Bryan Cranston says Season 2 of the Showtime legal drama will be its last.

“I am [currently] preparing for the second and last season of Your Honor, which is a limited series that I did for Showtime,” Cranston said on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. “As they tell me, it got higher ratings than any other series they’ve ever had — and so, one more season of that.”

TVLine has reached out to Showtime for comment.

Originally conceived as a limited series, Season 1 of Your Honor starred Cranston as Michael Desiato, a respected New Orleans judge whose teenage son, Adam (Truth Be Told‘s Hunter Doohan), was involved in a hit-and-run that led to “a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices,” according to the official logline. The Season 1 finale aired in February 2021 (read our recap), while a Season 2 renewal followed in August.

Meanwhile, our sister site Deadline is reporting that Season 1 writer Joey Hartstone has been elevated to showrunner for Season 2, succeeding Peter Moffat.

In addition to Cranston, the Season 1 ensemble featured Michael Stuhlbarg (Call Me By Your Name), Hope Davis (Love Life), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire) and Sofia Black-D’Elia (Single Drunk Female). Guest stars included Maura Tierney (The Affair), Amy Landecker (Transparent), Margo Martindale (The Americans), Lorraine Toussaint (The Equalizer) and Keith Machekanyanga (The Rookie) — the latter of whom has been promoted to series regular for Season 2. 

A premiere date for the 10-episode swan song has not yet been revealed.
