DIRECTV Announces 20 Episode Order of Rogue from eOne
DIRECTV announced today that it has greenlit 20 new episodes of the suspense-drama, ROGUE, from leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne). Thandie Newton (The Pursuit of Happyness, Crash) will reprise her role as Grace Travis and Cole Hauser (Transcendence, Olympus Has Fallen) will resume his role as Ethan Kelly. Production is slated to begin in January 2015 with the first ten episodes set to premiere on DIRECTV’s Audience Network in Spring 2015 and the remaining ten episodes scheduled to air in 2016. The second season of ROGUE, which recently finished its successful run on Audience Network, revolved around Grace Travis (Newton) as she moved forward with her life after finally avenging her son’s death in season one. However, when the young female undercover operative she was responsible for went missing, Grace was forced to go back undercover inside Ethan’s (Hauser) security firm.
“ROGUE has clearly resonated with our viewers and we are thrilled to announce the twenty episode pick up of the series,” said Chris Long, SVP Original Content and Production, DIRECTV. “Viewers enthusiastically tuned-into season two and we look forward to sharing exciting new chapters in the lives of these richly drawn characters.” “It’s an incredible achievement to have an additional twenty episodes greenlit which are already confirmed on the broadcast schedule for the next two years.
