The show also stars Barry Sloane (Revenge), Kyle Schmid (Copper), and Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos), as Rip’s fellow teammates.

Six is a captivating drama series that embraces our recent history while being immensely relevant in the climate of today’s culture,” Jada Bennett, president and general manager of History, said in a statement. “It has struck a genuine chord with our audience and we’re proud to continue to tell the courageous stories, both on and off the battlefield, of the complex lives of this elite military group.”
