USA Renews 'Graceland' for Season 2

Ahead of its first season finale, USA has renewed the Jeff Eastin-created drama Graceland for a second season. The Fox Television Studios-produced series will conclude its freshman season on September 12 at 10/9c. following the series finale of Burn Notice. Season two will debut in 2014.

Graceland follows rookie FBI Agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) as he is unexpectedly shipped off to a Southern California beachfront property turned safehouse for undercover agents, dubbed "Graceland," and assigned to investigate his would-be mentor - the enigmatic and legendary FBI Agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata). The series co-stars Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren, Serinda Swan and Manny Montana.

The series ranks as one of the summer's top new scripted series on cable among viewers 18-49. When factoring in Live+7 numbers, it has averaged 4.3 million total viewers and 1.8 million adults 18-49.

"Jeff Eastin has once again delivered for USA Network. Graceland's brilliant serialized storytelling mixed with striking cinematography and a captivating ensemble cast has clearly resonated with a wide audience," said USA co-president Jeff Wachtel. "We're proud to be the home of summer's top new cable drama and anticipate Graceland will be a long-term player for the network."
