DirecTV’s original scripted drama, “Rogue,” has been picked up for 20 additional episodes.

The series, produced by Entertainment One, stars Thandie Newton and Cole Hauser. Production on the new order will begin in January, with the first batch of 10 episodes set to air on DirecTV’s Audience network in the spring. The following 10 episodes will air in 2016.

“Rogue’s” second season, which wrapped on the Audience Network in July, centered around Grace Travis (Newton) as she moved forward with her life after finally avenging her son’s death in season 1. However, when the young female undercover operative she was responsible for went missing, Grace was forced to go back undercover inside Ethan’s (Hauser) security firm.

“’Rogue’ has clearly resonated with our viewers and we are thrilled to announce the 20-episode pick up of the series,” said Chris Long, senior VP Original Content and Production, DirecTV. “Viewers enthusiastically tuned into season 2 and we look forward to sharing exciting new chapters in the lives of these richly drawn characters.”

“It’s an incredible achievement to have an additional 20 episodes greenlit which are already confirmed on the broadcast schedule for the next two years. This speaks to the talent involved in the show and all of our team’s commitment to producing high-quality, compelling entertainment,” said John Morayniss, CEO of eOne Television. “We’re delighted to continue working alongside DirecTV as well as our talented cast and crew as we prepare more edge-of-your-seat episodes of ‘Rogue.’”

“Rogue” is produced by eOne in association with DirecTV. The series was created by Matthew Parkhill. It is executive produced by Morayniss and Michael Rosenberg for eOne, Parkhill and Nick Hamm for Momentum TV.
