American Crime Season 3

American Crime: Connor Jessup Sets 'Shocking' Season 3 Return

American Crime is putting Connor Jessup through the emotional wringer again.

The actor, who gave a tour de force performance as a teenager grappling with his sexuality in the ABC drama’s second season, will return for Season 3, the network announced Wednesday.

“Connor Jessup is one of the smartest and most talented young actors working today,” said executive producer Michael McDonald. “[Series creator] John [Ridley] and I believe Connor’s performance will be even more emotionally shocking than last year as his character helps shed new light on the opiate addiction epidemic that is plaguing America.”

Ridley previously revealed that the North Carolina-set third season would delve into “labor issues, economic divides and individual rights.”

Jessup is the latest American Crime alum to commit to Season 3, joining fellow franchise vets Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, Regina King, Lili Taylor and Richard Cabral.

    I’m still so angry he wasn’t nominated. He was the center of the main story and such a revelation.

  2. TJ says:

    I hope this season is even half as good as last season. They did such a great job tackling such a difficult subject. I was glued to the television!

  3. Tom says:

    This show tackles controversial, yet necessary, subjects. The Opiod epidemic is awful right now. I can’t wait to see what Connor Jessup does with this role.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Great news to be announced on my birthday! So happy he’s coming back to the show in season 3! He was great in season 2. Been a fan of his since Falling Skies!

  5. GuessWhat says:

    I am not one to overly complain about Emmy snubs — but he was TOTALLY ROBBED this year! Glad he will be back.

  6. David4 says:

    He was amazing in season 2 and really nice to look at. So happy he’s back.

    I really hope Joey Pollari is back for Season 3!

  8. Steven says:

    More like Ben Mason gets harnessed into another season of American Crime.

    Connor and his character’s story-line were the only reasons why I watched the show. Looks like the next season is back on my viewing list after all.

    Connor should have received an Emmy nomination for his brilliant work in Season 2! I’m glad he’s back for the new season
