SundanceTV’s crime show Hap and Leonard has been picked up for a second season.
Earlier today, British actor James Purefoy, who plays liberal-minded trouble-magnet Hap Collins on the show, tweeted, “On a brighter note @HapAndLeonard has been officially picked up for Season 2.” (Purefoy’s previous recent tweets had detailed the choatic fallout of the U.K’s vote to leave the European Union.)
Adapted from Joe R. Lansdale’s East Texas-set series of crime novels, Hap and Leonard costars Michael Kenneth Williams as Collins’ buddy, the military vet Leonard Pine. The first season, which broadcast earlier this year, also featured Christina Hendricks, Jimmi Simpson, Bill Sage, and Pollyanna McIntosh. Hap and Leonard is created by director Jim Mickle (Cold in July, Stakeland) and his longtime cowriter, the actor Nick Damici.
