Netflix has ordered a ten-episode second season of its new supernatural drama ‘The Order’. Created/written and executive produced by Dennis Heaton and Shelley Eriksen, the series stars Jake Manley and Sarah Grey. The first season was released on March 7. Manley and Grey will return, with additional casting expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The new season is expected to begin filming this summer to be released in 2020.
According to TV streaming tracking app TV Time, ‘The Order’ was the #5 most streamed show the week it premiered, then shot to #1 the following week, and it has been in the Top Ten since. The series’ tone has been compared to those of ‘Teen Wolf’ and ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’.
The Order follows college student Jack Morton as he joins the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose, a secret society that teaches and practices magic. As Jack goes deeper, he uncovers dark family secrets and an underground battle between werewolves and the magical dark arts.
The series is further described as “a magical and terrifying journey to uncover our true selves — and the monsters that hide within.” Manley portrays Jack, while Grey plays fellow college student Alyssa Drake, already a member of The Order.
Netflix made the announcement of the renewal via a Youtube video, which you can watch below:
The first season also starred Matt Frewer (whom ’80s kids will remember as Max Headroom), Sam Trammell, and Max Martini.
Heaton wrote for and executive produced Syfy’s ‘Ghost Wars’ and ‘Motive’ among other projects. Eriksen previously co-created ‘Private Eyes’ and worked on the series ‘Continuum’. Viewers of The CW may recognize Manley, who appeared on ‘iZombie’ as Fisher Webb, while Grey appeared as Stargirl/Courtney Whitmore on ‘Legends of Tomorrow’.
