Epix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of the original drama series Get Shorty.

In addition to O'Dowd and Romano, the drama also stars Sean Bridgers, Carolyn Dodd, Lidia Porto, Goya Robles, Megan Stevenson, Lucy Walters and Sarah Stiles.

Guest stars in the new season include Felicity Huffman, Raymond Cruz, Steven Weber, Andrew Leeds, Amy Seimetz, Sonya Walger and Alex Sawyer.
