Apple TV+ announced today that The Big Door Prize has been renewed for a second season. The quick pickup comes just a week after the comedy premiered to high praise from viewers and critics alike.

"We are so grateful to the audiences around the world who have already embraced the weird little hopes and dreams of our Deerfield residents, and we could not be more excited about where we plan to take them in season two," said creator David West Read. "Thanks to our partners at Apple TV+ and Skydance, we have an incredible opportunity to keep building the magic and mysteries of 'The Big Door Prize' with this truly remarkable ensemble cast."

Based on M.O. Walsh's novel of the same name, the half-hour series follows family man and high school teacher Dusty Hubbard, who lives in the small town of Deerfield and is fairly content with his life. When a mysterious machine appears in the general store, promising to reveal people's true life potential, Dusty watches everyone around him reevaluate their life choices and ambitions based on its printouts. It also forces him to question whether he is actually as happy with his life as he once thought.

Look for Season 2 of The Big Door Prize in 2024.
