The action comedy is still coming back for Season 2.
June 8, 2021
Die Hart has been picked up by Roku for a second season. The news may sound familiar, as the former Quibi original was already slated to return for Season 2 before the mobile streaming service shut down its operations last year.
Roku stepped in last month to offer all former Quibi series as Roku Originals, giving the shows a possible second life on the Roku Channel. Today the outlet has made its first official renewal with Season 2 of Die Hart, which will still be titled Die Harter.
In the action comedy, superstar Kevin Hart plays a fictionalized version of himself. Always wanting to be an action movie star, he learns a new set of skills before he can be cast in a life-changing role by training at the world's top action star school, run by a crazy coach who will push him to his limits. But he'll face his fears and try to survive a series of over-the-top action sequences if he wants to achieve his dream.
Quibi was an over-the-top American short-form streaming platform that generated content for viewing on mobile devices. To capitalize on mobile viewing specifically, Quibi provided "quick bites" of content that can be viewed under 10 minutes
I was wondering what "Make it longer" meant (in context). So Die Hart and everything else was only 10 minutes or less. No wonder Die Hart doesn't even get an entry on Wikipedia. Now Roku has Quibi and it will be free to watch for me - I could - but I've never watched Roku's programming yet. But Roku recently announced that Google (with Youtube TV) was encroaching on independence and privacy (my words). Google is definitely evil so maybe Roku is a good guy. Don't know but hope so.
