While most movie sites tend to talk about everything on AMC’s The Walking Dead, it seems that Showtime seems to have an ever-growing hit on their hands. After their initial season, the Showtime series has been breaking its own records week after week.
So much so that Showtime has already renewed the series for a third season. Getting a twelve episode pick-up didn’t seem like a big surprise for the show that delivered its most-watched episode in its season premiere with 1.73 million viewers, only to break the record this past weekend with 1.75 million viewers.
According to the figures supplied by Deadline, the season two premiere delivered 5.2 million viewers across platforms, which include Live+7 (DVR and on-demand) which is up 25% versus season 1. Best performance ever for a sophomore series for Showtime. Production is expected to begin in spring 2013.
“The Emmy wins for Homeland have certainly set the stage for a great second season,” said Showtime entertainment president David Nevins. “The writers, cast and crew of Homeland continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride, growing audiences week after week.”
