BET announced today that American Soul has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes on the eve of the drama's freshman finale, and follows a solid debut outing.

Inspired by the personal journey and professional successes of ambitious, young, yet troubled, impresario Don Cornelius, the story follows the Soul Train creator, his dancers, crew, and musicians as they navigate cutthroat Hollywood in the racially-charged 1970s.

Look for Season 2 of American Soul in 2020.
