HBO Renews ‘Vice’ for a Second Season

HBO Renews 'Vice' for a Second Season

A day before its season finale, “Vice” has gotten a renewal notice from HBO. The half-hour news magazine series will get a 12-episode second season that will air in 2014.

Hosted by Vice co-founder and CEO Shane Smith, “Vice” has focused on provocative international and domestic news story ranging from illegal gun manufacturing in the Philippines to Senegalese laamb wrestling to North Korea, the topic of tomorrow’s finale. “I honestly don’t think there is another network in the world that would have given us the opportunity and support that HBO did over the last year,” said Smith in the announcement. “We learned a lot over the course of shooting season one, and are insanely excited over our story selection for season two. Now that our various parasites, hernias and virulent rashes have been treated, we are ready in mind and in body to go out there and get the gold.”

“Vice” kicked off its 10-episode current season on April 5th. The show is executive produced by Bill Maher, Smith and Eddy Moretti, with Fareed Zakaria serving as a consulting producer.

Here’s a clip from tomorrow’s episode:
