CMT announced today that Still The King has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which premiered last month as the cable network's first move into original scripted programming, stars Billy Ray Cyrus as a washed-up one-hit-wonder who comes to learn he has a 15-year-old daughter.

The series is off to a strong start through the first two-thirds of its run. Its June 8 premiere ranks as the cable network's highest-rated debut for an original series with over 4.7 million viewers in Live+3 numbers across a three-network simulcast, and continues to garner almost 4.5 million viewers each week.

CMT has ordered 13 new episodes for Season 2 of Still The King, which is slated to begin production in Nashville this fall for a 2017 premiere.
