EXCLUSIVE: UnPrisoned, the Onix Collective dramedy starring and executive produced by Kerry Washington and Delroy Lindo, has been renewed for a second season on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ in all other territories.

Additionally, Washington has renewed her overall deal with ABC Signature, the studio behind UnPrisoned, which debuted in March as Onyx Collective’s most-viewed premiere on Hulu and as the inaugural dramedy series for the brand.

Inspired by creator Tracy McMillan’s life, UnPrisoned follows a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist, social media influencer and single mom, Paige Alexander (Washington), whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad, Edwin Alexander (Lindo), gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.

The series, whose Season 2 writers room is already up and running, is executive produced by McMillan, Yvette Lee Bowser and Washington alongside Pilar Savone, through their Simpson Street production company, and Lindo. Joy Gorman Wettels and Jen Braeden also executive produce.

Under the new exclusive 3-year TV deal, Washington will produce broadcast, cable and streaming projects for ABC Signature, part of Disney Television Studios, through her Simpson Street banner which has been with Disney Television Studios since its 2016 launch.

In addition to UnPrisoned, Washington executive produces through Sampson Street/ABC Signature the Onyx Collective for Hulu drama series Reasonable Doubt — now headed into season 2 — which she also directs. Additionally, Simpson Street produced the 2019 Emmy-nominated limited series Little Fires Everywhere for Hulu/ABC Signature.

Savone, an executive producer on UnPrisoned, Reasonable Doubt and Little Fires Everywhere, continues as Simpson Street’s EVP of production and development.

“Kerry is the gold standard for a what a multihyphenate should be— passionate, prolific and endlessly kind. She, Pilar and the Simpson Street team are incredible collaborators, and we’re so proud of our most recent Onyx Collective/Hulu series UnPrisoned and Reasonable Doubt, as well as our award-winning series Little Fires Everywhere,” said Tracy Underwood, EVP, Creative Affairs, ABC Signature. “We look forward to many more years of their unparalleled creativity and talent,”

Simpson Street’s credits also include HBO’s Confirmation, Netflix’s American Son, the Emmy award-winning ABC special, Live in Front of a Studio Audience, The Fight and Street You Grew Up On.

On screen, Scandal alumna Washington was recently seen in The School for Good and Evil on Netflix, and heard on the Audible scripted podcast series The Prophecy. She next stars in Shadow Force; and Tyler Perry’s WWII film 6888, both of which she also executive produces.

In September 2023, Washington released her memoir, Thicker Than Water, earning a spot on the New York Times Bestseller list. She is repped by CAA, Washington Square Arts, The Lede Company, and Gretchen Rush.
