Successful neurosurgeon Scott Harmon (Michael Chiklis) is on trial for providing material assistance to a school shooter. Scott's son Devin is suspended for threatening another student, and his father suspects that he is planning to commit an act of mass violence after finding a diary in his room filled with dark thoughts and fantasies of revenge. After a botched attempt to murder his son in a staged accident, Scott gives Devin money so he can travel and try to cope with his anger. Shortly after his return, Scott hears on the news that his son and a young man named Jasper are armed and have taken hostages at their former high school. When Scott tries to talk his son into surrendering, Devin angrily blames his father for giving up on him before committing suicide while Jasper is taken into custody. After hearing his story, the jury acquits Scott of all charges.

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 60% approval rating with an average rating of 7.3/10, based on 15 critic reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "While Accused is yet another variation on a very familiar theme, its anthology structure offers enough flexibility and star power for some compelling courtroom stories." Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 60 out of 100 based on 12 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
Max Gao of The A.V. Club gave the series a B and said, "Offers a fresh take on the typical legal procedural." The Hollywood Reporter's Angie Han wrote, "Without much insight to share, catharsis to offer or even a particularly interesting tone or style to grab us, Accused becomes just another so-so crime drama in an ocean teeming with them." Writing for The Wall Street Journal, John Anderson stated, "Accused may be out to provoke, but it scores more hits than misses. And its sins of indulgence are ultimately well-intended."
The premiere episode had more than 11.3 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among the 18-49 demographic in the three days after its premiere on multi-platforms. It is the highest-rated and most-watched debut on Fox in 3 years.
