FX Renews 'The Bridge' for a Second Season


FX Renews 'The Bridge' for a Second Season


It's official: FX has picked up 'The Bridge' for a second season. Deadline reports that the next 13 episodes of the successful crime thriller - it's the No. 1 new scripted cable series launch of the summer in adults 18-49 - will air next summer.

In a statement given today, Eric Schrier, President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said, "We’ve been blown away by the compelling performances of Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger and the writing of Meredith Stiehm, Elwood Reid and their team, and are thrilled to be able to continue this journey for another season."

The series is based on the Scandinavian series 'Bron' about a bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden. In its American form, the series follows one Mexican cop and one American cop, as they jointly investigate a serial killer terrorizing the U.S.-Mexico border. Bichir stars as Marco Ruiz, a detective from Chihuahua State Police, while Kruger plays El Paso detective Sonya Cross, who also happens to have Asperger's.

This is no doubt good news for its massive fan base (the first season is averaging 3.65 million total viewers) and its cast and crew, alike.

As disappointing as it will be to see Season 1 of the crime show wrap up on Oct. 2., fans can now eagerly await the next season.

Be sure to catch 'The Bridge' every Wednesday at 10/9c on FX.

First episode of second season just aired Sunday the 22nd. Only watched the first episode of FX' version so far and wasn't very impressed sadly. Gonna give a few more episodes a chance though. But either way, good news for the show I guess :)

Watched the original, torn on this one. Remakes, especially US, are usually crap. But this is FX. Maybe wait until the end of the season then view them all. Original has a second series coming sometime. Maybe beforeUS version.
