"Lucky Man," the U.K. crime drama based on an idea by Stan Lee, has been renewed for a second season by Sky 1.
Produced by NBCUniversal's Carnival Films ("Downton Abbey"), the 10-episode first season has become the channel's most-watched original drama to date, averaging 1.9 million viewers. The season finale will air Friday.
James Nesbitt ("Jekyll," "The Missing") stars as Harry Clayton, a London homicide detective who's given a charm by a mysterious woman that enables him to make his own luck. It appears to mean a turning point for Clayton, who's not only been left by his wife and child but also faces death threats from a crime boss to whom he owes money. However, the change in luck comes with a cost.
"What a thrill it is that 'Lucky Man’s' coming back for another sensational season!" Lee said in a statement. "It’s going to be a terrific new ride with Harry and the gang, where fortune smiles on those who catch my king-sized cameo in season two!"
The new season is set to air in 2017.
