FOX Networks Group renews new spy drama series, Deep State, for a second season before its debut on FOX.

FOX Networks Group has renewed its new spy drama series, Deep State with Mark Strong, for a second season of 8 episodes before its debut on FOX today in the United Kingdom and starting next week on FOX (DStv 125 / StarSat 131 / Cell C black 201) in South Africa and Africa on 11 April at 21:00.

Deep State with actor Mark Strong, known from the Kingsman films, plays Max Easton in Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa's first regional scripted series commission for the Europe and Africa territory and is produced by Red Arrow's Endor Productions with 8 hour-long episodes with the story that is set in Britain, the United States, Iran, Lebanon and France.

Max is an ex-spy whose past comes back to haunt him as he returns to the field to avenge the death of his estranged son Harry (Joe Dempsie). Max soon discovers there is much more at stake, as he finds himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war and immersed in a widespread conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos in the Middle East.

"We are thrilled that as the first season of Deep State launches, we also have a greenlight for season two. The team at Fox Networks Group, Europe & Africa have been the most supportive of partners and we look forward to our next adventure together," says Hilary Bevan Jones, the executive producer at Endor Productions in a statement.

Diego Londono, the chief operating officer (COO) for Fox Networks Group for Europe & Africa says "The team at Endor have produced a brilliant and compelling new series for us, which has been getting tremendous feedback from both our pay-TV partners and buyers alike".

"As audiences across the globe begin on their Deep State journey, we're delighted to demonstrate our commitment to both this thrilling new drama and to commissioning regional stories that can entertain audiences around the world, in line with our rich Hollywood heritage."
