CMT has announced a second season, 13-episode renewal of Still The King, starring Billy Ray Cyrus, Joey Lauren Adams and Madison Iseman.

The one-hour season finale airs Sunday, Aug. 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Season 2 will begin production this fall and is slated to premiere next year.

The premiere of Still The King on June 8 marked CMT’s highest rated original series premiere to date grossing more than 4.7 million total viewers (L+3) for a 1.03 rating A18-49 rating across a 3 network simulcast (CMT, TV Land, [email protected]). The series is currently reaching nearly 4.5 million viewers each week.

“Working on the series has been a career highlight,” said Cyrus, who is also executive producer. “Thanks to the fans for embracing these crazy characters and all of their beautiful flaws. We’re going to take this mess to a whole new level next season.”

“The success of Still The King is a wonderful start for our move into scripted programming,” said Jayson Dinsmore, EVP of development for CMT. “Both charming and irreverent, this series is like nothing else on television and we can’t wait to continue the journey.”
