The adventures of Bob Lee Swagger will continue for another season.
USA Network today announced a second season pick-up for Shooter. A co-production with Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions.
The series currently airs on USA Tuesday nights with the season one finale set for Tuesday, January 17 at 10/9c.
“John Hlavin and the team behind SHOOTER have delivered a compelling action thriller that consistently engages a strong and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We look forward to partnering once again with Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions as we follow Bob Lee into his next chapter.”
Shooter is based on the best-selling novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg.
The series 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.
The series stars Ryan Phillippe, Shantel VanSanten, Cynthia Addai-Robinson and Eddie McClintock. Notable guest stars this season include WWE Superstar Randy Orton, William Fichtner, Desmond Harrington and Beverly D’Angelo.
