Luck

HBO has renewed Luck for a 10-episode second season, the network announced Tuesday.

The horce-racing drama, led by Dustin Hoffman, will start production on Season 2 at the end of February, with an eye for a January 2013 return.

Is HBO's horse-racing series Luck a big gamble?

"We couldn't be more thrilled with the critical response to this beautiful piece of work and we are very excited about where David and Michael plan to take these incredible characters." Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said in a statement.

After a special sneak peek in December, Luck premiered Sunday to 1.1 million viewers.
