The first season of Rian Johnson’s Poker Face hasn’t even ended yet, but it looks like Peacock knows they have a hit on their hands when hey see it.
As per an official announced, Poker Face starring Natasha Lyonne has been renewed for a second season. Here’s the post:

We don’t know where the series is planning to go, but we should suspect that Charlie (Lyonne) finds a natural penchant for mystery solving thanks to her ability to detect when anyone is lying. Before she can push on with that though, she’ll have to deal with the bounty on her head that’s been placed there by one angry Casino owner.
While I was expecting the series to end up like Knives Out, I found the character of Charlie is actually a different kind of fun to watch compared to Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc. While Blanc is good at deducing all kinds of evidence, Charlie just kind of puts things together clumsily, while at the same time just being a carefree ‘trashy’ adult.
Here’s to hoping we get a Blanc/Cale team-up soon.
Here’s the official series description:
Poker Face is a 10-episode “mystery-of-the-week” series following Natasha Lyonne’s Charlie, who has an extraordinary ability to determine when someone is lying. She hits the road with her Plymouth Barracuda and with every stop encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she can’t help but solve.
