Epix Renews Graves TV Series for Second Season
It’s a big day for scripted series at EPIX. The cable channel has renewed its Graves TV show for a second season. Nick Nolte stars in the dramedy as President Richard Graves. A former two-term POTUS, he embarks on a Don Quixote-like quest to right the wrongs of his administration and reclaim his legacy. The series explores topics including immigration, gay rights, foreign policy, and public funding for arts and sciences
Skylar Astin, Heléne Yorke, Chris Lowell, Callie Hernandez, Nia Vardalos, Ernie Hudson, Roger Bart, and Angélica Maria also star. The first season of Graves kicked off on October 16th. According to Deadline, the renewal is for a 10-episode second season. Epix has not posted the news to its press site, but the cabler has also reportedly renewed its other scripted series — Berlin Station — for season two.
Epix President and CEO Mark S. Greenberg said, “Both series are particularly timely and relevant and quickly found their place in the competitive TV landscape.”
The Graves season one finale airs on Sunday, December 18.
