Status for season 3
The series is NOT renewed for a new season. It has been cancelled and there will not be a season 3
"For Life" had high viewer scores in the first season, but a drop in viewers and viewer scores in the second season means that the show might be cancelled.
Inspired by the life of Isaac Wright Jr., “For Life” is a fictional serialized legal and family drama about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. The show will also, through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, examine the flaws and challenges in our penal and legal systems.
Cast: Nicholas Pinnock as Aaron, Indira Varma as Safiya, Joy Bryant as Marie, Glenn Fleshler as Frank, Dorian Missick as Jamal, Tyla Harris as Jasmine with Mary Stuart Masterson as Anya and Boris McGiver as DA Maskins.

This has been one of the best – if not theeee best – midseason shows that tv has offered up in quite awhile. As of May 11th, it had not been renewed for another season, so here’s hoping that it is. After last night’s finale, it would be a shame to see it go out like that.

Don’t leave us hanging…
