If all of this wasn't exciting enough from the word go, Prime Video is apparently confident enough in the show that they're already signed on for a Season 2. Hodge has some new characters to brush up against in those episodes. It's already been reported that Matthew Lillard, Wes Chatham, and Jeanine Mason are joinging Cross for the second season. So, there's that drama to look forward to. Showrunner Ben Watkins has been absolutely grateful for the response from the company. But, he has to share the honor of the quick renewal with the entire crew working on the show.

"I am thrilled to be embarking on another chapter of Cross. Moments like this don't happen by accident," Watkins would add of the quick renewal. "Getting a Season 2 pick-up before our first season even drops is a huge testament and vote of confidence in the amazing work that our crew, cast, directors, writers and production team have delivered thus far. It's also a direct result of the unwavering support bestowed upon us by Prime Video and our producing partners at Paramount TV Studios, Skydance and James Patterson Entertainment. I am grateful for all of the above and can't wait to run it back even bigger and better."
