Apple TV+ announced today that The Mosquito Coast has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes two days before the adventure drama wraps its 7-episode freshman run this Friday.

"The Mosquito Coast has captured the imagination of viewers all over the world, not only because of its adrenaline-fueled action and adventure but also for the engaging family story and captivating performances at its heart," said Apple's head of programming, Matt Cherniss. "We can't wait to find out what comes next for the Fox family, and for audiences to continue to experience the thrill ride."

Adapted from Paul Theroux's best-selling novel, the hour-long series stars his nephew Justin Theroux as brilliant inventor and radical idealist Allie Fox. On the run from the US government, he embarks on a dangerous journey after deciding to uproot his family for Mexico in search of a safe haven.

Look for Season 2 of The Mosquito Coast in 2022.
