Showtime Renews 'On Becoming a God in Central Florida' for Season 2

Showtime has today renewed its original dark comedy series On Becoming a God in Central Florida for a second season. The series will likely return with new episodes in 2020.

The comedy stars Kirsten Dunst, Théodore Pellerin, Mel Rodriguez, Beth Ditto and Ted Levine.

Robert Funke and Matt Lutsky created the series. They executive produce with Dunst, George Clooney, Grant Heslov, Esta Spalding and director Charlie McDowell. TriStar Television, Smokehouse Pictures and Pali Eyes Pictures produce.

"With such imaginative storytelling and an absolutely inspired lead performance, On Becoming a God in Central Florida has been a revelation," said Jana Winograde, Co-President of Entertainment, Showtime. "Kirsten, Esta, Robert, Matt and Charlie have crafted a wondrous blend of satirical light within the economic and emotional melancholy that confronts so many Americans. We couldn't be happier that On Becoming a God is on Showtime, nor more eager to see what wild events await our ensemble in the downline of season two."
