HBO announced today that The Deuce has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes the week following the drama's series premiere, which has earned early critical praise for its storytelling and colorful characters portrayed by its ensemble cast, which includes Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco.

Titled after the slang used by locals for New York’s fabled 42nd Street, The Deuce is set in and around Times Square and follows the legalization and subsequent rise of the adult film industry beginning in the early 1970s. With HIV and drug-related violence on the rise, two twin brothers start working for the Mob while operating out of Times Square, which is also home to a sex worker who starts working in the emerging porn industry.

Look for Season 2 of The Deuce in 2018.
