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.”
