1970s-set rock and roll drama Vinyl – from the minds of Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese and more – has been renewed for a second season…

Here’s some good news: HBO has ordered a second season of Vinyl, the 1970s record label-themed drama created by Mick Jagger, Rick Cohen, Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese. Mr Scorsese also directed its two-hour pilot episode, which only aired last Sunday.

By renewing the series so quickly, HBO has showcased some serious confidence in the show. Despite not premiering to smash-hit ratings – its pilot earned a modest 764,000 viewers via traditional methods - Vinyl must be impressing the HBO head honchos. (It also impressed our reviewer, if you were wondering.)

Bobby Cannavale stars in Vinyl, as a record label president called Richie Finestra. The impressive supporting cast includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, »
