Magic City: Season Two Renewal for Starz TV Show

Magic City renewed season twoStarz has renewed its new TV series, Magic City, for a second season. The renewal comes more than two weeks before the show’s official premiere on April 6th. Yesterday, the cable channel announced their plans for a three episode preview on March 30th. The period drama, created by Mitch Glazer, has already been sold worldwide, into 70 international territories.

Magic City revolves around the world of Miami’s Miramar Playa Hotel in 1959. The TV series stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, and Danny Huston, with Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, Jessica Marais, Yul Vazquez, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Kelly Lynch, and Elena Satine.

Starz’ chief executive officer Chris Albrecht, said, “Magic City is a beautifully written, superbly acted, and visually stunning series, and we feel the quality of the work accomplished deserves a second season. It has already been sold in more than 70 territories worldwide, and represents the kind of premium entertainment the Starz brand is seeking to create.”

Production on Magic City’s second season is expected to get underway later this year and should air sometime in 2013. Starz ordered eight installments for season one and has asked for 10 installments for season two.

What do you think? Are you more likely to watch Magic City, knowing that it’s already been renewed for a second season?

    My husband and I enjoy watching “Magic City”. It’s nice to see how things were back in the day. My grandfather was in the casino scene back then also. It’s interesting to see hoe things were handled in the 50’s. I hope the show is on for many more years to come.

    Great news STARS has renewed the series for a second season. The show is cast well and
    is simply excellent and well written. While its expected many younger 20 something’s may find it boring when your attention span is as short as a knat that’s ok this is not the show for you. However for the grown and sexy 30 and up crowd yeah us! This is pre-sopranos , pre-alias, pre womens lib, etc. we plan to have a watch party of 50 friends so bring the Magic we fully support the show! Kudos STARS!

    Can hardly wait until season 2 starts…never heard of it until we went looking for something to watch and found Magic City – the first season! Wished it had 5 seasons
    not just one! Don’t you dare even consider cancelling this series!
