Pop TV is giving its limited series Flack another run with a Season 2 renewal at the network. The dark comedy follows Anna Paquin as Robyn, an American and publicist working out of London.

Six episodes have been ordered for the second season, which will include two episodes directed by executive producer and Paquin's husband/True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer. Production on Season 2 is currently underway in London.

Joining Paquin in the new episodes will be cast additions Sam Neill — with whom she reunites after appearing together in 1993's The Piano — and Lost alum and The Good Doctor executive producer Daniel Dae Kim.

Neill will appear in a multi-episode arc as Duncan, a man who has a perplexing relationship with PR boss Caroline. Meanwhile, Kim will play Scott Cole, a "tech titan" who becomes involved in a romantic relationship with someone at the firm. And as previously stated, Paquin will reprise her role as Robyn, who at the end of Season 1, saw her work and personal lives collide in a catastrophic way.

Plus, the actress reveals a lesson she learned from 'Breaking Bad.'

 

"One of the most exciting pieces of feedback I received after the season finale of Flack was people begging for more episodes so they could continue to ride the intensely exciting rollercoaster of our show and find out what the future has in store for our characters," Paquin said.

Thankfully their prayers are being answered as the actress confirmed the Season 2 news and made this promise:
