Star James Purefoy has announced his Hap and Leonard TV show has been renewed for a second season. The renewal does not come as a surprise. Last month, we reported it was expected. SundanceTV has not yet issued an official press release. Hap and Leonard season two is expected to consist of six episodes.
Purefoy stars as Hap Collins, in this comic “swamp noir” series. Hap is an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women. Michael Kenneth Williams also stars as Leonard Pine, his best friend — a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. The cast also includes Jimmi Simpson, Bill Sage, Pollyanna McIntosh, Neil Sandilands, and Jeff Pope.
Here is Purefoy’s announcement on Twitter. The caption reads, “On a brighter note @HapAndLeonard has been officially picked up for Season 2.”
