If you’re a fan of Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables) and Daniel Sunjata (Grey’s Anatomy), you’ll dig this news. USA has announced that they’ve decided to renew the dramatic hit series Graceland, which stars the duo as undercover agents.
Inspired by true events, the one-hour drama will be going into their second season with a 13-episode order. It isn’t a surprise given the ratings for the network. During their first season, Graceland brought in 1.8 million viewers and averaged a total of 4 million, which is enormous for a freshman series on USA.
The synopsis for Graceland is listed as follows:
“Somewhere in Southern California, in a drug raid run by the US government, a beachfront property was seized and turned into a residence for undercover cops. They are all top agents of the DEA, FBI, and Customs and they are living in this house unofficially known as “Graceland”. “Graceland” is a place full of secrets, and bad, good, and blurred moments too. The only idyllic thing is its outside look, but the lives of its residents are nothing like it.”
Making the announcement of the second season pick up was USA President Chris McCumber, who expanded his thoughts on how important Graceland is for the network, having said:
“Jeff Eastin has once again delivered for USA Network. GRACELAND’s brilliant serialized storytelling mixed with striking cinematography and a captivating ensemble cast has clearly resonated with a wide audience.”
“We’re proud to be the home of summer’s top new cable drama and anticipate GRACELAND will be a long-term player for the network.”
For those who want to catch up with Graceland, you have only a few days before the season finale, which is set to air on Thursday, September 12 at 10/9c. Graceland airs right after the series finale of Burn Notice, which is a fantastic lead in for the series.
If you want to catch up, Graceland is currently available on video on demand and can be streamed at USA’s site, USANetwork.com.
