Following its June 1 premiere, SundanceTV and ABC TV have renewed supernatural drama Cleverman for Season 2.
The 6-episode second season will start production in Australia later this year.
Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said of the early renewal:
“The world that Ryan Griffen and the rest of the team behind Cleverman have created is a perfect blend of timeless mythology seen through the prism of a near future lens. This is a series that sophisticated genre fans will no doubt fall in love with. We are thrilled to be working with our incredible partners to continue the West brothers‘ journey.”
Sally Riley, head of scripted production at ABC TV, offered:
“It’s rare that you get the green light for a second series of a show before the first season has even gone to air, so for me it’s a testament to the quality and audience appeal of Cleverman. It is also a testament to the unflinching support the show has from our funding partners Screen Australia and Screen NSW here in Oz, and our international partners Red Arrow and Sundance TV.”
Stay tuned as we now monitor the renewal status of Cleverman Season 3…
