Sylvester Stallone will stick around in Tulsa for another season.
Paramount+ announced today it had renewed Taylor Sheridan's mob drama Tulsa King for Season 2. Only three episodes have premiered on the streaming service so far, but the series has proved to be a success for the streamer.
"With the combination of the incomparable Sylvester Stallone and Taylor Sheridan’s darkly comedic twist on the beloved mobster genre, we have found our latest hit in Tulsa King," said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer, Paramount Streaming. "The series' premiere on Paramount+ helped drive a record sign-up day fueled by our unique ability as Paramount Global to tap into Paramount Network’s incredible Yellowstone audience."
Sheridan is also behind series like Yellowstone, 1923, 1883, and The Mayor of Kingstown.
