Showtime announced today that Back to Life has been renewed for a second season. The British dramedy premiered earlier this month for a six-episode run that has been garnering critical praise. While the Season 1 was a UK import, Season 2 will be a co-production between Showtime and BBC Three.

The series follows Miri Matteson, who has recently returned to her seaside hometown after spending 18 years behind bars. Trying to rebuild her life in an unfamiliar world, Miri looks to rekindle old relationships while finding employment and re-adjusting to society. But it's easier said than done, as people have not forgotten about the incident that resulted in her prison sentence.
