The wait and worrying is finally over. Shooter has been renewed for a third season! It will consist of 13 episodes, up from 10 and 8 from the previous two seasons, respectively. Filming starts on January, but pre-production has already begun and the cast has shared some photos while on training!
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – USA Network is keeping Shooter around for another season.
The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has handed out a third-season renewal to the military drama starring Ryan Phillippe. Production on season three begins in January in Los Angeles. Sources say season three will consist of 13 episodes — up from 10 and eight in seasons one and two, respectively. Season three will pick up where season two left off and use all new footage with viewers getting resolution from the sophomore run, which was cut short from its planned 10-episode run following Phillippe’s injury.
The upcoming season is based on the second book in the Stephen Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger series, titled Black Light. As Bob Lee struggles to put an end to the events of season two, a nemesis reveals mysterious details surrounding his father Earl’s death, leading Bob Lee toward a startling conspiracy that hits close to home.
