Premium network EPIX announced Thursday the second-season renewals of its first two original scripted series, one-hour spy drama Berlin Station and half hour dramedy Graves. Both series received a 10-episode order for their sophomore years.

Berlin Station follows a group of CIA operatives working in Germany as they try to uncover a mysterious whistleblower and navigate a slew of secrets they all seem to be holding. The series, created by executive producer Olen Steinhauer, stars Richard Armitage (pictured above), Michelle Forbes, Rhys Ifans, Leland Orser, Tamlyn Tomita and Richard Jenkins.
