Subsequent seasons will be launched later. The series stretches to two seasons thus far with US broadcast network News Corp-owned Fox greenlighting a third run, which will debut later this year.

The series is produced by ex News Corp executive Peter Chernin’s Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution handles international sales.
