HBO Renews Luck for Season 2

by at . Comments

Just two days after the premiere of its latest drama, HBO is feeling lucky.

The network has renewed Luck for a second season, despite merely mediocre ratings for the David Milch/Michael Mann-produced horse racing series. Just over one million viewers tuned in for the 9 p.m. showing on Sunday.

Still, a 10-episode second season will kick off in January 2013.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the critical response to this beautiful piece of work,” said head of HBO’ programming, Michael Lombardo. "And we are very excited about where David and Michael plan to take these incredible characters.”

ONe of the producers of this says he has owned race horses. Some cheap trainer must of bent him over the wheelbarrow in the stable barn. He must hate racing to have the distorted view. Someone must be funding this mediocre program. Next season expect naked people as that will be only draw left for mindless people to watch it. I feel good about not having hbo if this is what they call "real" programing. Lots of talent and great photography with no relevent reality of society.
