Epix announced today that Get Shorty has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes just two weeks into the dramedy's 10-episode freshman run, and makes the show the third Epix newbie to get a Season 2 order shortly after its premiere; the other two being Graves and Berlin Station, both of which scored renewals late last year.

Based on Elmore Leonard's best-selling 1990 novel of the same name, Get Shorty follows Miles Daly, who works as the muscle for a Nevada crime ring. Wanting to broaden his horizons in an attempt win back his wife and daughter, he changes professions by becoming a movie producer with the help of a washed-up filmmaker.

Epix has ordered another 10 episodes of Get Shorty for Season 2, which is expected to premiere in 2018.
