It seems like just this morning, we were saying that History needed to renew its scripted Navy SEAL drama Six. And now, it has! The network just announced that the top-rated new cable series of 2017 has been picked up for a 10-episode second season, with production set to begin this summer.

"Six is a captivating drama series that embraces our recent history, while being immensely relevant in the climate of today’s culture,” said Jana Bennett, the President and General Manager of History in a release sent to the press. “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.”

Averaging 2.9 viewers in key demos, the military combat drama starring Walton Goggins (Justified), Barry Sloane (Revenge), Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos) and Kyle Schmid (Being Human) explores the lives of America's elite Special Ops unit both at home and in the field as they work to rescue their captured ex-leader. The eight-episode first season has two new episodes remaining, and past hours are available for streaming on History.com, the History app and on demand.
