The 1970s drama about the porn industry in New York City is co-created by David Simon of The Wire and they hope it translates into success. After only two episodes of the series, HBO’s The Deuce has been renewed for a second season at the network.
HBO president of programming Casey Bloys had to say this of the renewal:
“We are thrilled to continue our creative collaboration with master storytellers David Simon and George Pelecanos. Their unique gift for immersing the audience in their dark and edgy worlds brings a brilliant verisimilitude unlike any other. With the remarkably talented Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco leading an exceptional cast, we look forward to delving deeper as this captivating story evolves.”
The Deuce airs Sunday at 9pm EST.
