The series, one of the short-form service’s most-high profile titles, follows Dodge Tynes (Hemsworth), who is desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life and accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he’s the prey. Waltz plays Miles Seller.
Nick Santora, who also created CBS’ Scorpion and wrote on The Sopranos, told Deadline that he has already written season two. He said that Waltz will return and the second season will feature a new “runner”.
“We’re prepping it now with the hopes of being able to film it when there’s a handle on filming safely in the time of Covid,” he said.
