Prime Video has picked up a second season of The Peripheral, the Chloë Grace Moretz starrer that’s based on the best-selling novel of the same name by William Gibson.
Season one bowed on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide in October. The Peripheral is produced by Amazon Studios and Warner Bros. Television, in association with Kilter Films.
“We are thrilled to continue the journey into Season Two and delve deeper into the incredible world that Gibson created,” said Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, Kilter Films, in a statement. “On behalf of Scott Smith, Vincenzo Natali, and the entire team, we’re grateful to our partners at Amazon and, most of all, to the fans.”
