Only six days after Survivor’s Remorse debuted on Starz, the show was picked up for a second season.
The comedy follows Calloway as he deals with fame, fortune and leaving his loved ones back home in Boston — issues that James can relate to in his own life … sorta like art imitating life.
“We’re thrilled with the overwhelming critical acclaim Survivor’s Remorse has received, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with such an all-star team,” Starz CEO Chris Albrechtsaid, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
But “Survivor’s Remorse” isn’t the only Starz original series — which the network is focused on its expansion in diversity — that’s been renewed for a second season.
Albrecht also commented on “Power,” the crime drama produced by 50 Cent which was popular with Black audiences and was also quickly renewed for a second season.
“The not-so-surprising secret about ‘Power’ is that white people don’t watch a lot of shows that don’t have a lot of white faces in them. That’s going to take some time,” he said.
The premiere of “Survival’s Remorse” pulled in 200,000 viewers, but a total of 1.3 million viewers with online viewership. With season two, the amount of episodes will increase from six — like the first season — to ten.
