'Strange Angel' Renewed for Season 2 at CBS All Access
CBS All Access' track record remains perfect.
The streaming service has handed out a second-season renewal for scripted drama Strange Angel.
The series, which launched in June and wrapped its season in August, becomes the latest scripted original to earn a second season at CBS' subscription video on demand platform. The series joins a CBSAA roster that also includes Star Trek: Discovery, The Good Fight and No Activity, all of which have scored sophomore orders. (The fate of scripted entry One Dollar has not yet been determined.)
Jack Reynor stars in the drama based on the biography Strange Angel: The Otherworldly Life of Rocket Scientist John Whiteside Parsons. Mark Heyman created the series that explores the intersection of genius, madness, science and science fiction. The CBS TV Studios entry is exec produced by Scott Free Productions, Heyman, David DiGilio, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker.
"We look forward to exploring the next chapter of Jack Parsons’ journey,” said Julie McNamara, exec vp originals at CBS All Access. "Strange Angel and its talented cast and crew are the epitome of the type of programming we strive for at CBS All Access – daring, imaginative and unconventional.”
Next up for CBS All Access is Kevin Williamson's Tell Me a Story. The SVOD platform continues to bulk up its scripted roster with Star Trek shows, including a recently ordered animated comedy and a live-action drama in which Patrick Stewart will reprise his iconic role as Picard.
