SundanceTV has renewed The Red Road for a second season, TVWise has learned.
The basic cable network has ordered a further six episodes, which will air on Sundance in 2015. The order follows on from the second season pick up for fellow drama Rectify and comes shortly after Sundance boarded the BBC series The Honourable Woman, set to air this Summer; and two-parter One Child, which will air later this year.
The Red Road revolves around two clashing communities – a small town and the neighboring mountains, home to a Native American tribe – and two dynamic men on a collision course. The series, which wrapped its six episode first season earlier this month, stars Martin Henderson, Jason MomoaJulianne Nicholson and Tamara Tunie.
“’The Red Road’ tells the tale of a shocking conflict which plays out in a very specific place – the land that the Native Americans live on literally oozes danger”, said Sarah Barnett, President of Sundance TV. “It’s a show about what happens when you try to bury the truth, and the devastating impact of that. We’re proud of this tremendously talented cast and can’t wait to see where creator Aaron Guzikowski takes this story in season two.”
