Renewed: The Bridge
FX has renewed its US adaptation of The Bridge, based on the Danish series of the same name.
The US series revolves around two detectives, one from the U.S. (Diane Kruger) and one from Mexico (Demian Bichir), who must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.
The show has been performing well in the US, launching with 5.07 million viewers, just behind The Americans as FX’s biggest launch to date. It finished averaging 3.65 million total viewers and 1.68 million among adults 18-49.
“We’ve been blown away by the compelling performances of Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger and the writing of Meredith Stiehm, Elwood Reid and their team, and are thrilled to be able to continue this journey for another season,” said FX president of original programming Eric Schrier. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Rich Ross, Carolyn Bernstein and everyone at Shine America.”
“We are thrilled to have another season of The Bridge.” said Sharon Tal Yguado, FIC’s EVP of Scripted Programming and Original Development. “The creators of the show have an exciting plan for season two which we can’t wait to share with the world.”
The series is currently screening in Australia on FX on Thursday nights.
