The Danny McBride televangelist family comedy's renewal comes four episodes into its nine-episode first season. The Righteous Gemstones has had a solid ratings performance so far. The renewal continues HBO's partnership with McBride and his Rough House Pictures partners Jody Hill and David Gordon Green after previous collaborations on Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals. "Danny, Jody and David are among our favorite collaborators, and we’re thrilled that their take on a family comedy has been met with such enthusiasm," said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming. "We cannot wait to share the next steps in the Gemstone family's epic journey. Hallelujah!"
