Amazon's Prime Video announced that The Rig has been picked up for a second season. The news comes less than two months after the supernatural thriller released its 6-episode freshman run.

"It was always my aim to build a story that starts in Scotland but speaks to a global audience about global themes," said David Macpherson, writer and creator. "In Series Two, I'm looking forward to expanding the world of our show through the eyes of our excellent cast, as we deliver more shocks and thrills and delve deeper into both our characters' and our show's expanding original mythology."

The Rig follows the crew members working on the Kinloch Bravo oil rig off the coast of Scotland. When the time comes for them to return back to the mainland, the oil rig becomes engulfed by a mysterious, supernatural mist that cuts off their communication with the outside world. The crew will be driven to their limits as they confront forces that are beyond their imagination.

Filming of Season 2 is slated to take place in Scotland later this year. Look for a premiere in early 2024.
