Starz has greenlit a third season of its basketball-themed series Survivor’s Remorse, the network said Wednesday.
The series, about a young basketball star and his family adjusting to the life of the rich and famous, will return in 2016, according to network officials.
Currently in the midst of its second season run, the series posted an 18% week over week audience gain in its second episode with a series-high 1.34 million viewers, said network officials.
Survivor's Remorse, which stars Jessie T. Usher, Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, Teyonah Parris and Erica Ash, is executively produced by Tom Werner, Maverick Carter, LeBron James, Mike O’Malley, Paul Wachter and Vic Levin.
“We are thrilled to renew Survivor’s Remorse for a third season,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz, in a statement. “Since it began, the critics instantly embraced the show, and now we’ve seen its fans grow season over season. This all-star creative team, led expertly by Mike O’Malley, boldly tackles the most topical of issues with heart and humor as the Calloway family deals with ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ off the basketball court. We are very happy and proud to have them return to Starz for another season.”
