HBO has renewed the edgy newsmagazine "Vice" for a second season.
Announced this week, the 12-episode second "Vice" season will premiere in 2014.
"I honestly don't think there is another network in the world that would have given us the opportunity and support that HBO did over the last year," blurbs "Vice" EP Shane Smith. "We learned a lot over the course of shooting season one, and are insanely excited over our story selection for season two. Now that our various parasites, hernias and virulent rashes have been treated, we are ready in mind and in body to go out there and get the gold."
Adds Bill Maher, another "Vice" EP, "Damn them, I don't hear about my own show any more from people on the street. They stop me and say, 'I love that 'Vice' show!'"
"Vice" wrapped its first season on Friday, June 14 with an episode focusing entirely on a trip to North Korea.
