The Jury is an American legal drama television series that aired on Fox from June 8 to August 6, 2004.[1] Each week, in the same New York City courtroom, a new 12-person jury deliberates over a criminal case. Each episode begins at the start of jury deliberations; the trial is recounted through flashbacks.[2]

Fox announced the series' cancellation in July 2004 due to low ratings, but all ten episodes were aired.[3][4]
