Two summers ago, another network aired one season of a comedy about a guy who discovered a meteor was headed straight for Earth and would destroy it in six months – You, Me and the Apocalypse.
Last fall, another network aired a dramedy about a guy who discovers the Earth has six months until a meteor destroys it and decides to do all the things he always dreamed of doing, a journey that only grows more important when he falls in love – No Tomorrow.
Now that we’ve had a comedy and a dramedy on the subject of Earth-killing meteors, it’s only logical to assume someone would try the concept as a drama.
FX’s series Tyrant has given a second season order of 13-episode.
The story of an unassuming American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent fictional Middle Eastern nation, Tyrant was, initially, the source of some controversy, but critical response was extremely good and the show quickly built a solid audience.
Production for season two has been scheduled to begin next spring for a summer 2015 return. For more, follow the jump.

The series uses the three relationships to explore how each influences the others – and whether for the better.
