CBS says it has ordered a second season of Ransom, its hostage-negotiator drama starring Luke Roberts.

The show's next 13 episodes will be filmed in Hungary and are set to premiere next year.

Co-starring Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor, the series follows Roberts' Eric Beaumont "whose team is brought in to save lives when no one else can," a network press release said.
