MGM+, formerly known as Epix, has officially picked up its Stephan James and Lena Headey-led sci-fi drama series “Beacon 23” for a second season.

The news is of little surprise as Spectrum and AMC had already renewed the show with filming on both seasons done back-to-back, and now MGM+ is set to air it with an April premiere date planned. It also comes as the first season just wrapped.

The first season unfolds in the farthest reaches of the Milky Way and follows Aster (Lena Headey), a government agent, and Halan (Stephan James), a stoic ex-military man, who find their fates entangled after becoming trapped together inside one of many Beacons that serve as a lighthouse for intergalactic travellers.

Every Beacon is run by one highly trained human and a specialized Artificial Intelligence system. Aster mysteriously finds her way to the lonely Beacon-keeper Halan, and a tense battle of wills unfolds with Halan questioning Aster’s motives and mysterious agenda.

The series is based on Hugh Howey’s book of the same name and hails from creator Zak Penn (“Ready Player One”) who showruns alongside Glen Mazzara (“The Walking Dead”).

Both executive produce alongside David Fortier, Ivan Schneeberg, James Middleton, Nick Nantell, Tina Thor, Katie O’Connell Marsh, Elisa Ellis, Liz Varner, Ira Steven Behr, Daniel Percival, Joy Blake, Headey and James.
