Quibi orders Season 2 of Die Hart
James R | On 22, Sep 2020
Quibi may be struggling to work out what to do next, but despite reports of its current difficulties, it’s still showing no sign of stopping investing in content, renewing Kevin Hart’s Die Hart for a second season.
The comedy sees Kevin Hart play a fictionalised version of himself who’s tired of being the comedic sidekick. He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic. Pushed to his limits by this action school coach and a tough-minded rival student (Nathalie Emmanuel), Kevin must survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime.
Co-starring John Travolta, the show premiered on Quibi on 20th July, with 10 short episodes released throughout that month. Quibi reportedly said it was its most-watched show of the summer, going on to commission a second run from LOL Studios.
“LOL Studios is excited to produce Season 2 of Die Hart and continue our work to bring premium comedic content and new IP to market,” said Jeff Clanagan, President of Laugh Out Loud, who produces the series alongside Hart, LOL’s Candice Wilson and Bryan Smiley (HartBeat Productions).
It joins a string of other renewed programmes at Quibi, including its revival of Reno 911!, Most Dangerous Game, 50 States of Fright, NightGowns, Nikki Fre$h, Chrissy’s Court, Dishmantled, Gayme Show, Muder House Flip, Punk’d and Thanks a Million.
