FX on Hulu sticks with Reservation dogs.
The FX Networks Streaming Center picked up a second season of the comedy centering on a group of Native teenagers on a rural Oklahoma reservation (where it is also filming). The renewal comes amid the eight-episode first season, which premiered on August 9.
“We were eager to share Reservation dogs with viewers and are delighted that they seem to like it as much as we do. We are happy to place an advance order for another season,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX. “Sterlin Harjo has executed his creative vision by teaming up with Taika Waititi and the rest of the creative team, the brilliant cast and crew to create one of the best new TV comedies and a groundbreaking showcase of representation and raw talent.”
Oklahoma native Harjo and Waititi co-created the series, which stars D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis and Lane Factor. Every writer, director and actor on the show is Indigenous.
The series received uniformly positive reviews, with The Hollywood Reportersays Daniel Fienberg Reservation dogs is “easy going, but quietly revolutionary”. (As usual with streaming outlets, viewership numbers are not publicly available.)
Harjo and Waititi executives produce the FX Productions series with Garrett Basch.
