Pivot Renews First Scripted Drama ‘Fortitude’ for Season 2

Just in time for its freshman finale, “Fortitude” has been picked up for a second season.

Pivot and Sky Atlantic announced the Season 2 renewal Thursday.

The psychological thriller, starring Stanley Tucci, is the first-ever scripted drama for Pivot, Participant Media’s television network.

The first season told the story of a small-town rocked by a violent clime. Set in the Arctic town of Fortitude, the series follows the community, as suspicion grows after a brutal and shocking murder, and warmer-than-average temperatures cause the ice to melt, revealing secrets, which have long been hidden under the frozen ground.

“From the first episode, audiences responded to the incredibly rich world Simon Donald created, where nature and civilization collide with catastrophic results,” said Kent Rees, general manager of Pivot. “We’re excited to announce that ‘Fortitude’ will be back for another season of suspense and chaos.”

Zai Bennett, channel director of Sky Atlantic, commented: “Simon Donald created a unique and unsettling story which, week after week, has captivated audiences. I am absolutely delighted that we will be bringing ‘Fortitude’ back next year with a story that promises to engage, challenge and enthral us all over again.”

“Fortitude” is created, written and exec produced by Donald. Patrick Spence and Frith Tiplady also serve as exec producers for Fifty Fathoms and Tiger Aspect, and Anne Mensah and Lizzie Grayserve exec produce for Sky Atlantic. Jeff Skoll and Chris Loveall will serve as exec producers on Season 2. Tucci stars alongside Michael Gambon, Sofie Grabol, Richard Dormer and Christopher Eccleston.

The Season 1 finale of “Fortitude” airs tonight.
