Epix Renews ‘Berlin Station,’ ‘Graves’ for Second Seasons

Premium cable network Epix has renewed its first two original series for second seasons. “Berlin Station” and “Graves” have both received 10-episode orders, with production scheduled to start in early 2017.

“These ambitious series represent the level of prestigious, cinematic and authentic storytelling we are committed to offering our subscribers,” said Epix president and CEO Mark S. Greenberg. “Both series are particularly timely and relevant and quickly found their place in the competitive TV landscape. We couldn’t be more excited to continue to tell these unique and compelling stories.”

Berlin Station,” which centers on a new arrival at the CIA’s Berlin outpost who is on a clandestine mission to uncover the source of a leak, stars Richard Armitage, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes, Leland Orser, Rhys Ifans, and Tamlyn Tomita.

Comedy “Graves” follows former two-term Republican president Richard Graves (Nick Nolte) as he attempts to right the wrongs of his administration 25 years after leaving the White House. Sela Ward, Skylar Astin, Heléne Yorke, Chris Lowell and Callie Hernandez also star.

Both series are hitting the middle of their first seasons, with finales to come in December. Epix is also about to start production on its third original series, an adaptation of “Get Shorty” starring Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd.

Produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, “Berlin Station” is created by New York Times best-selling author Olen Steinhauer, who also serves as executive producer. Bradford Winters is the showrunner and an executive producer. Academy Award winner Eric Roth and Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content and Michaël Roskam also serve as executive producers. “Berlin Station” films in Berlin.
