FX Renews ‘Tyrant’ For Season Two

18 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX has picked up the political drama “Tyrant” for a second season, increasing the episode order to 13.

The 10-episode first season run of “Tyrant,” which is exec produced by Howard Gordon, averaged 5.1 million total viewers and 2.3 million adults 18-49 inclusive of linear, time-shifted and non-linear viewing. It was also mired by filming problems, such as a move to Turkey after this summer’s Gaza conflict made it unsafe to continue production in Israel.

“We’re so proud of ‘Tyrant’s’ performance throughout its first season,” said Nick Grad, who, along with Eric Schrier, is the president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Production. “Howard Gordon is one of the best and most successful producers in this business. His ability to combine intelligent, edge-of-your-seat storytelling with events from the current geopolitical climate is truly groundbreaking. We look forward to seeing how Tyrant grows in season two.”
