SundanceTV announced today that Hap and Leonard has been renewed for a second season. The news broke this morning from star James Purefoy, who took to Twitter to confirm the Season 2 pickup.

The freshman drama with dark comedy elements, which is based on books by Joe R. Lansdale, premiered its six-episode debut season in March to positive reception from both critics and viewers.

There is no word yet on a timeframe for the show's return or the number of episodes planned, though another six in 2017 appears likely at this point.
