The 10-episode mystery of the week series from Peacock, Poker Face, has been renewed for a second season!
From Creator/Writer/Director/Executive Producer Rian Johnson, the series follows Natasha Lyonne’s Charlie, who has an extraordinary ability to determine when someone is lying. She hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda and with every stop encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.
“Poker Face is one of those rare, undeniable shows that we all fell in love with from the start, but the critical acclaim and viewer response has been beyond our wildest dreams,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Working alongside the creative genius of Rian Johnson, Natasha Lyonne and Ram Bergman, along with our partners at MRC and T-Street, has been a spectacular ride, and we can’t wait to hit the road for another season as we continue to build momentum across Peacock’s originals slate.”
Alongside Lyonne, the series’ first season includes a star-studded guest star list including Adrien Brody, Lil Rel Howery, Luis Guzmán, Angel Desai, Audrey Corsa, Benjamin Bratt, Brandon Michael Hall, Charles Melton, Rhea Perlman, Ron Perlman, Rowan Blanchard, Stephanie Hsu, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tim Meadows among others.
Episode 7, “The Future of the Sport,” airs this Thursday with new episodes dropping Thursdays through March 9, including Episode 8 “The Orpheus Syndrome” co-written and directed by Lyonne.
