‘Good Behavior’ Renewed for Season 2 by TNT

TCA 2017: Michelle Dockery drama will return this fall

TNT has renewed Michelle Dockery thriller “Good Behavior” for a second season.

In addition to the “Downton Abbey” alum, “Good Behavior” stars Juan Diego Botto, Terry Kinney and Lusia Strus. The series is executive-produced by Chad Hodge and Blake Crouch, based on a series of books by the latter. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements also executive produce.

The sophomore run of “Good Behavior” is slated to launch in the fall. The renewal announcement took place Saturday during parent company Turner’s time at the Television Critics Association press event.

“Fueled by unsinkable characters on a dangerous search for belonging, love and family, ‘Good Behavior’ is addictive television,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of Original Programming for TNT. “Millions of viewers have fallen hard for this sexy, complicated couple, and in Season 2, Letty and Javier will give us plenty more to obsess about.”

“‘Good Behavior’ tells the story of Letty Raines (Dockery), a thief and con artist whose life is always one wrong turn or one bad decision from implosion,” per TNT’s official description. “Fresh out of prison, Letty tries to stay afloat; reunite with her 10-year-old son who is currently being raised by her mother Estelle (Strus); and show up for the mandatory check-ins with her parole officer Christian (Kinney), who carries his own demons which cause him to relate to Letty in a way that threatens his ability to do his job.

“Chaos returns to Letty’s life when she overhears a hitman (Botto) being hired to kill a man’s wife and decides to derail the job,” the cable channel continued, “entangling the pair in a complex and dangerously captivating relationship.”
