Crackle’s first original drama, The Art of More, is coming back for more in 2016.
The drama starring Dennis Quaid and Cary Elwes first premiered on the Sony-owned streaming service Nov. 19, and has garnered two million views since then, with more than half coming from newcomers to the network, according to a media release issued by Sony.
It’s enough to garner the series — Crackle’s most ambitious original project to date — a second season.
“There is still much more story to tell,” said Eric Berger, GM of Crackle and EVP of Sony Pictures Television Digital Networks, in a statement.
Elwes, Quaid and co-stars Kate Bosworth and Christian Cooke are all expected to return for season two, with filming on 10 new one-hour episodes set to begin in early 2016.
The series follows a young war veteran who gains access to an elite society through the world of smuggling and counterfeiting.
Berger said the fresh season will be a chance for writers to go more in-depth with the characters and story.
The show has garnered mixed reviews to date, and holds a 55% average critic rating on Metacritic.
Crackle, which launched in 2000 as Grouper and was purchased by Sony and re-branded as Crackle in 2007, boasts a small, but star-studded slate of originals, including the animated comedy SuperMansion, starring Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston; Sports Jeopardy, hosted by Emmy-winning sportscaster Dan Patrick (which premiered in September 2014); and the long-running comedy series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee starring Jerry Seinfeld (now in its sixth season).
