HBO renews David Simon's 'The Deuce' for Season 2

HBO renews David Simon's 'The Deuce' for Season 2”

He also hasn't been known to draw "Game of Thrones"-level awards attention despite an abundance of critical praise for his projects "The Wire", "Generation Kill", "Treme", and "Show Me a Hero".

We're only two installments into The Deuce - David Simon and George Pelecanos' chronicle of pornography's mercurial rise in NYC during the 70s - but we here at BMD are already big, big fans (just check out my reviews of the Pilot and "Show and Prove"). HBO has announced that it has ordered a sophomore season for the porn drama starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. "Their unique gift for immersing the audience in their dark and edgy worlds brings a brilliant verisimilitude unlike any other".

Created by David Simon and George Pelacanos, "The Deuce" premiered September 10 on the premium service. That's a strong show of confidence from the premium network, especially for David Simon, whose previous work has been revered but not known to draw "Game of Thrones"-level numbers".

Set in and around New York City's Times Square, The Deuce tells the story of how pornography became a billion-dollar business by following the pimps, prostitutes, cops, criminals, movie producers and service industry supporters who helped it get there.

"Many thanks to HBO, our longtime partners, who've now given us the opportunity to continue to tell this compelling story", adds Pelecanos.

"The Deuce" only needs several days after its series premiere to get a second season renewal. "And they don't scare". The Deuce airs Sundays at 9 PM on HBO, so borrow your mom's HBO GO password and catch-up with it if you haven't yet.
