Second Chance is a science-fiction crime thriller drama that premiered on FOX in 2016. It follows the story of a 75-year-old sheriff named Jimmy Pritchard (played by Robert Kazinsky) who dies in the line of duty while investigating a case. However, his body is later revived by a team of scientists who give him a new lease on life through an experimental procedure that involves injecting him with a special serum that regenerates his cells.

As a result of the serum, Pritchard not only comes back to life but also becomes younger, stronger, and faster. He now has a second chance at life and uses his newfound abilities to solve crimes while navigating his complicated personal life.

Although Pritchard is grateful for his new lease on life, he is also torn between his longing for his old life and his newfound abilities. He also discovers a troubling conspiracy led by the businessman who orchestrated his resurrection, Otto Goodwin (played by Adhir Kalyan). Goodwin has his own agenda for resurrecting Pritchard and wants to use him as a weapon to further his own interests.

Pritchard's family life is also complicated. He has two grown children, Duval (played by Tim DeKay) and Helen (played by Amanda Detmer), who are not on the best of terms with him. Duval is a police detective who is investigating the crimes that Pritchard helps solve while also trying to understand his father's resurrection. Helen, on the other hand, is a wealthy and influential socialite who resents her father for being absent during most of her childhood.

To add to the mix, Pritchard's relationship with his adult son Duval is conflicted, to say the least, and much of the story centers around the father-son dynamic. Duval is initially hesitant to accept his father's new identity and resents him for his past neglect and abandonment.

The show features an intricate plot filled with twists and turns that keep the audience engaged. It also explores several underlying themes such as personal redemption, the ethics of resurrection, family relationships, and the dark side of technology.

The cast does an excellent job of bringing their characters to life, especially Robert Kazinsky, who portrays Sheriff Pritchard in a powerfully emotive and nuanced performance. Kazinsky's ability to convey the internal turmoil of his character is impressive, and his portrayal of the sometimes-conflicted emotions of a man given a second chance is compelling.

Dilshad Vadsaria also delivers a strong performance as Mary Goodwin, Otto's daughter and the lead scientist responsible for Pritchard's resurrection. Her character is conflicted and caught between her duty and her feelings for Pritchard. Adhir Kalyan is equally adept at playing the charismatic, megalomaniac Otto Goodwin, the show's main villain, who is willing to stop at nothing to achieve his goal.

The cinematography is visually stunning, and the show's sets and special effects are impressive, creating a world that is both intriguing and immersive. The show's action scenes are also well choreographed and executed, adding to its overall appeal.

Overall, Second Chance is an engaging and entertaining show that explores the theme of second chances in life. Though it was canceled after just one season, many fans were disappointed to see it go, especially given its cliffhanger ending that left several plot threads unresolved.

Second Chance is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (52 episodes). The series first aired on January 13, 2016.
