Starring James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams, the second season will consist of six episodes scheduled to debut in 2017. John Wirth (“Hell on Wheels,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) will join the project as showrunner and executive producer for Season 2.

The series is based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale and was developed by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici. The second season will take inspiration from “Mucho Mojo,” the second installment of Lansdale’s the book series.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing ‘Hap and Leonard’ back for another season with these completely unique characters,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “James, Michael and the creative and production team did a superb job bringing Joe Lansdale’s characters to life in Season 1, and Sundance viewers responded accordingly. We can’t wait to see what the boys get up to in Season 2.”

“Hap and Leonard” is produced by AMC Studios and hails from executive producers Wirth, Mickle, Damici, Jeremy Platt, Linda Moran, and Nick Shumaker, along with co-executive producers Lansdale and Lowell Northrop.
