CBS has decided to pay the ransom and give a second season to its freshman series.
The network announced that the drama series Ransom has been renewed for a second season.
The 13-episode order will be filmed in Hungary for broadcast next year. Additional details will be announced at a later date.
Ransom stars Luke Roberts as expert hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont whose team is brought in to save lives when no one else can. Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor also star.
The series is inspired by the professional experiences of distinguished crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, who, along with his partner, Marwan Mery, are among the top negotiators in the world.
The series was created by David Vainola (“Diamonds,” “Combat Hospital”) and Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files,” “The Man in the High Castle”).
