Kevin Hart's Die Hart has been renewed for Season 2 by the Roku Channel, which will be titled Die Harter. Hart will return as himself, but the rest of the cast will be announced at a later date. John Travolta, Nathalie Emmanuel, Josh Hartnett and Jean Reno appeared in the first season alongside Hart. The first season of the show focused on Hart, who played a comic actor with a desire to make the leap from sidekick to action star. To help him get there, he's given a few tips and tools from some major figures.
"Die Hart exploded out of the gate and after a spectacular debut weekend, has quickly become one of the most watched Roku Originals on The Roku Channel," said Colin Davis, Roku's Head of Original Scripted Programming in a statement. "We couldn't be more excited to bring an equally hilarious, action-packed second season to the record number of viewers who have watched in recent days."
The series marks the first Roku Original renewal for The Roku Channel, who saved the show once it was dropped by the now-defunct streaming service Quibi. The channel boasts the show received a warm welcome reaching a "record" number of households in its first month. In addition to the show, the channel itself has made a large leap. The Roku Channel has seen record growth this year, reaching U.S. households with an estimated 70 million people in Q1 2021. Hart will serve as executive producer on the second season alongside Tripper Clancy, Candice Wilson, Bryan Smiley, and Thai Randolph. Laugh Out Loud CEO and Hart's longtime business partner, Jeff Clanagan will produce. Eric Appel will return to direct the second season
