More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. It is becoming a healthy trend for Starz to renew its freshman shows even before premiere, giving the creator, production and writing team the chance to develop every idea for the plot. And that is refreshing in today´s television.
In this case Magic City gets renewed for season two by Starz. Starz Chief Executive Officer, Chris Albrecht, announced a 10-episode, second season order for the upcoming STARZ Original series, “Magic City,” ahead of its April 6 worldwide premiere at 10PM ET/PT. “Magic City” is a stylish, cinematic drama created and executive produced by Mitch Glazer (“The Recruit,” “Scrooged”), starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dibbuk Box), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Max Payne) and Danny Huston (The Kingdom, Children of Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
“‘Magic City’ is a beautifully written, superbly acted, and visually stunning series, and we feel the quality of the work accomplished deserves a second season,” said Albrecht. “It has already been sold in more than 70 territories worldwide, and represents the kind of premium entertainment the Starz brand is seeking to create.”
Mitch Glazer said “Season One of “Magic City” has been the most fulfilling and complete creative experience of my life. I’m thrilled to continue spinning tales of Miami Beach 1959 for Starz!”
“Magic City” production of season two is expected to begin later this year, with an on-air return expected on STARZ in 2013.
