Fairly Legal returns to your TV in less than two months on March 16, 2012 at 9 p. and here’s just a tease at what we’ll be getting.
I’ve added 5 images of Sarah to the gallery for the upcoming season of her hit USA series, Fairly Legal. The second season will kick off March 16, 2012 following the final season of In Plain Sight.

Here’s Sarah’s interview with The TV Addict.
Not attending San Diego Comic Con 2011? Not a problem! Because theTVaddict.com, courtesy of our West Coast Correspondent Tiffany Vogt and photag sister Jen will be risking life and limb to get you up close and personal with your favorite stars. Next up, star Sarah Shahi, who dishes on some of the big changes in store for fans when FAIRLY LEGAL returns for its second season.
Sarah talks Fairly Legal changes with TVLine. I really like what Sarah had to say and definitely agree with her. I really enjoyed Fairly Legal but always thought they could maybe take it up a notch in a lot of areas. It lacks a certain wow factor that I get with most of the USA brand and hopefully come Season 2 the change that they are talking about will cement this series as a flagship for the network.
Sarah Shahi was positively radiating good vibes when TVLine spoke with her mere moments after the news was officially handed down that USA Network had renewed Fairly Legal for a second season. Yet she, like some of the show’s fans, found herself at a loss to process a report that with the pick-up came a dictate for “creative changes” moving forward.
“I read about that just like everyone else, and I’m very curious to see what that means,” Shahi told me during the USA upfront presentation’s after-party. “I’m trying to pick my moments with [network co-president] Jeff Wachtel to bring that one up.”
I invited Shahi to reassure anxious the Fairly Legal fans who, in the comments on our renewal story, expressed concern over the rumored tinkering. “What I can say is that I am coming back — though I don’t know if your readers are going to be happy about that or not!” she joked.
Turning serious, she acknowledged that “there were some things in the first season we could have done better,” and with that in mind she anticipates a sophomore run that is “even more dynamic.”
“My hope is that all the good stuff will be heightened –- that the comedic stuff is even funnier, the dramatic stuff is deeper, and the storylines are stronger,” she offered. “That’s if I have anything to do with it -– and I hope I do a little bit, at least!”
One thing the actress doesn’t want to see change, though, is Kate’s delightfully quirky self.
“She is kind of a perfect mess, and I would love to see her get messier,” Shahi offered with a megawatt smile. “Season 1 ended with her getting fired, so I would love to see her swim in her own s— for a bit, then dig herself out.”
Sarah & Michael Trucco talked to TV Guide Monday night while attending the USA Upfronts. The pair dished on their series Fairly Legal, which was just given a 13-episode series renewal. Here’s what they had to say!
Fairly Legal: On the heels of a Season 2 pickup, Sarah Shahi shared she doesn’t want her character Kate to reunite with her ex-husband, played by Michael Trucco. “I think it’s the death of a show when two characters get together too quickly.” Trucco agrees: “I love the characters together, but I think for the importance of story there’s going to be a lot more conflict before they get resolved.” Shahi has some ideas for that conflict: “I’d love for a third person to get introduced. My choices are odd, but Russell Crowe, Eddie Vedder, I like the good bad boys.”
