US drama Z: The Beginning of Everything, which screens on Amazon, has been renewed for a second season.
The series, starring Christina Ricci, is a surprise renewal according to the Hollywood Reporter. While viewing numbers are not available, it notes ‘a weak 61 score on Metacritic’ lower than the 65 score of Good Girls Revolt, which was axed.
“We heard a good pitch for season two, and based on that, we renewed the show. Anything else is speculation,” an Amazon Studios spokesperson said.
Z: The Beginning of Everything is based on Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler and follows Zelda (Ricci) through her marriage to author F. Scott Fitzgerald (David Hoflin).
