Paramount+ announced today that Lioness has been renewed for Season 2. The news comes eight months after the espionage thriller wrapped its 8-episode freshman run. Originally titled 'Special Ops: Lioness,' the show debuted last summer and set a new record as the streamer's most-watched worldwide series premiere on launch day with nearly six million total viewers in its first week across Paramount+ globally and a linear preview on the Paramount Network.

"Our Paramount+ audience resoundingly has joined forces in support of Lioness' gripping, global story and the powerhouse performances from Zoe Saldaña, Laysla De Oliveira and Nicole Kidman," said Jeff Grossman, Executive Vice President, Programming, Paramount+. "We cannot wait to see more of the heart-stopping suspense and action that Taylor Sheridan and the incredibly talented team deliver in its second season."

The series follows Joe, a young Marine who is trying to balance her personal life with her professional life as the tip of the CIA's spear in the war on terror. The Lioness Program enlists an aggressive Marine Raider named Cruz to operate undercover alongside Joe among the power brokers of State terrorism in the agency's efforts to bring down the organization from within before the next 9/11 can occur.
