After the first season of American Rust aired on Showtime, the series was canceled. ‘American Rust’ Gets Season 2 continuation by Amazon Freevee.
American Rust is coming with its second season. After the Showtime series received the drop after only 1 season, IMDb TV, snatched it up to air solely on their platform.
The renewal will be a relief for Dan Futterman and Adam Rapp who will be given the chance to continue telling their story about the gritty Rust Belt town in Pennsylvania. Jeff Daniels will return with star Maura Tierney.
The first season of the crime drama is about the life of Del Harris who is the chief of police in a small, southwestern town in Pennsylvania. Life gets upside down for Harris when the son of the woman he loves, becomes the main suspect in a brutle murder.
After the renewal of the series, Daniels commented “I’m grateful to Amazon Freevee for giving us the chance to make Season Two of American Rust. Set inside a struggling American small town, our authentic, realistically told story is built for streaming. The movies they don’t make anymore are being made as series at places like Amazon Freevee. It’s where I want to be.”
If Season 2 of American Rust can rise and draw in more audiences, it stands to be a hit for Amazon Freevee.
