CBS All Access announced today that Strange Angel has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes six weeks after the conclusion of the historical period drama's 10-episode summer run, which garnered generally favorable reviews from critics.
The series premiered on the streaming service in June as its third original scripted drama. It is, though, its first without roots in any previous series; The Good Fight is a spin-off of The GoodWife and Star Trek: Discovery is the latest entry in the storied Star Trek franchise.
Based on George Pendle's book of the same name, StrangeAngel follows the real-life story of Jack Parsons, a brilliant blue-collar worker in 1930s Los Angeles who began as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world where he become a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley, whose teachings of self-actualization supported Parsons' unprecedented endeavor to the stars.
Look for Season 2 of Strange Angel in 2019.
