With just the pilot reaching the general public (and with disappointing ratings at that), HBO has already renewed David Milch’s Luck for a second season. It’s welcome news for me, as I thought the first episode, directed by Michael Mann, had plenty of intrigue and smarts and not to mention an all-star cast that features Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, and Dennis Farina. The series focuses on the intermingling stories of owners, jockeys, and gamblers around the horse-racing track. In a statement, president of HBO Programming Michael Lomboardo said:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the critical response to this beautiful piece of work, and we are very excited about where David and Michael plan to take these incredible characters.”

The ten-episode season 2 is scheduled to air in January 2013.

      I usually give most shows half a season before I totally give up on it. The fact that it has Hoffman, Nolte and is associated with Michael Mann and HBO…I’ll give it more leeway. I need to figure out what’s really happening. But for now, probably a good decision to skip. It’s nothing too spectacular.
