A&E has renewed Steven Seagal: Lawman for a second season picking up an order for 16 episodes, three more than season one’s 13 episodes.

Seagal and his Sheriffs Department colleagues again will protect the people of New Orleans, but this time the production filmed during Mardi Gras.

“It presents some unique challenges to the police force and Seagal; there’s such a high volume of people you never quite know what you’re going to get,” said Robert Sharenow, who executive produces the series with Seagal, John X. Kim, Phillip B. Goldfine and Neil A. Cohen

Season 1 of “Lawman” was a success for the network, averaging 2.1 million viewers and 1.3 million adults 18-49, making it A&E’s best freshman performance by an original series in total viewers.
