USA Renews ‘Shooter’ for Season Two

10 Episodes, To-Date, Have Aired

USA has re-upped drama “Shooter,” starring Ryan Phillippe and Omar Epps, for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes for 2017.

Debuting on Nov. 15 and based on the bestselling novel “Point of Impact” by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg, “Shooter” follows the journey of Bob Lee Swagger (Phillippe), a highly-decorated veteran who is coaxed back into action to prevent a plot to kill the President. When Swagger’s former commanding officer, Isaac Johnson (Epps), solicits his expertise for a clandestine operation, Swagger discovers that he has been framed and must do everything in his power to protect his family and clear his name.

  1. Yet another ratings disaster, yet another renewal by USA.

    Generally, this confirms my theory that at this point second seasons are 98% automatic no matter how bad the ratings are. Apparently, it helps avoid being fired for greenlighting a show that failed in its first season.

    This one is also a remake with a bad actor, so nobody is getting fired for that disaster.
