SundanceTV Renews The Red Road for Season 2

By Tim Surette

Apr 28, 2014

SundanceTV is sticking with The Red Road. The cable network has ordered a six-episode second season of the drama about clashing communities in a small town that's situated near the home turf of a Native American tribe. Season 2 will debut sometime in 2015.

The renewal comes despite middling reviews of Season 1. Since The Red Road debuted as the follow-up to SundanceTV's first original drama, the outstanding Rectify, hopes were high for the series, but it never earned the same critical attention as its predecessor. Personally, I thought the show had all the hallmarks of a great TV drama without actually containing interesting drama. That's too bad, because this show has Khal Drogo and his eyebrows deserve their own Emmys! 

Did you watch The Red Road's first season? Are you excited for more?

    This is a great show! Glad to hear there is going to be a second season. The character's stories are really starting to intertwine and produce layers. And I love Jason Momoa. Many shows these days do not get the chance they deserve.

    I've watched the last 3 episodes and liked it a lot. I'll be waiting the next season for sure.

    Loved this show glad it's coming back. Only six episodes though, what the hell is that.

    At first when they said 2015 I was like what the heck then I remembered that's just next year so anyway to anyone who hasn't watched this show yet guys don't be scared in the beginning it was sort of slow but as the episodes progress you'll see so much depth also I just love watching Jason acting with his wife great team

    So a slow-burning drama still has a chance in today's TV schedule. Great - I really hoped that this one will make it :)

    I didn't think they would give it a second chance ;but great .I hope season 2 would focus less in the teen story or the mental ilness story and in the main characters Kopus (Momoa)and Henderson.

    Gave up after first episode. Really not very good.

    Anyone know when Rectify is coming back? That is very good.

    "The renewal comes despite middling reviews of season 1."

    Haha. I just keep imagining everyone being too intimidated and afraid of Khal Drogo to cancel his show.
