FX has renewed its Denis Leary-fronted comedy for Season 2, a little over a month after the series wrapped its freshman run.
“The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season 2. In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kickass viral video out of it. Not to mention awesome Live+3s [ratings],” Leary, who also serves as a writer, director and executive producer on the series, said in a statement. “I look forward to once again creating new episodes of television with [FX Networks CEO] John Landgraf’s exceptional FX team. And scoring some cool Bastard Executioner swag.”
SDRR debuted in July to 870,000 total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, and by its finale was netting 500K/0.2. That said, FX notes that with Live+7 DVR playback folded in, it ranks as basic cable’s most watched scripted comedy in the Men 18-49 and Men 25-54 demos, and placed No. 3 in total audience and the Adults 18-49 demo.
SDRR’s 10-episode sophomore season will premiere sometime in 2016.
