Roku announced today that Most Dangerous Game has been renewed for a second season. The news comes three months after the streaming outlet acquired all former series from the now-defunct Quibi, offering them as Roku Originals.

Now some of the old Quibi lineup is starting to get an extended life at their new home. 'Die Hart' earned the first official renewal at the outlet with a Season 2 order in June. They are now following that up with Most Dangerous Game, which earned two short form series Emmy nominations following its freshman release last year.

Based on the short story "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell, the series follows a man with a terminal illness willing to do anything to ensure his pregnant wife is taken care of before he dies. When he is given the opportunity to participate in a deadly high-stakes game, he accepts - though he is not the hunter but the prey.
