Freeform announced today that Siren has been renewed for a second season. The freshman series is off to a solid start, with its March premiere ranking it as the #1 new cable drama among young women.
The network has ordered 16 episodes for the show's sophomore run, which is a considerable increase over the 10 it received in Season 1.
Siren follows the residents of Bristol Cove, a coastal fishing town where a legend exists that it was once home to mermaids. The folklore is proven true when a mysterious girl named Ryn arrives, wreaking havoc that results in a battle between the town's residents and these predatory beings who wish to reclaim their right to the sea.
Two episodes remain in the show's first season, with the finale set to air on Thursday, May 24.
