What happens when a blind woman in her 20s, drifting through life in a drunken haze, finds out that one of the only two friends she has in the world may have been murdered? A thrilling chase, with a guide dog of course. But when the woman is Murphy from The CW's 'In The Dark', it also leads to some absolutely hilarious mishaps.

The comedy-drama is in its second season for which the release date has been pushed forward following the abrupt end to 'Legacies' after 'The Originals' spinoff ran out of episodes to air for its current season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Release date

'In the Dark' Season 2 was earlier set to premiere on May 28. However, it will now replace 'Legacies' and will air the first episode of Season 2 on April 16 on The CW. The show will air every Thursday at 9/8c.

Plot

In Season 1, we are introduced to Murphy Mason, a blind woman with a self-destructive lifestyle. She just has two friends — Jess, her understanding roommate, and Tyson, a teenage drug-dealer who saved her from a violent mugging.

However, when Tyson ends up killed and his murder covered, Murphy steps out of her comfort zone and makes it her purpose to find his killer. She resolves to solve the murder herself, while also managing her colorful dating life and the job she hates at "Guiding Hope", a school for training guide dogs run by her parents.

Through her investigation in Season 1, Murphy also gets unwittingly involved with Tyson's brother's Darnell, a local drug dealer, and his boss, Nia. While she is able to solve Tyson's murder, it was revealed to be Dean, a cop who sympathizes with Murphy because his daughter is also blind. Murphy is told by Nia that she owes the latter since Murphy's friends stole Nia's money for Guiding Hope, a school for training guide dogs run by her parents.
