Nicole Kidman will be heading back to work soon! A new update concerning the fate of her show Special Ops: Lioness, has been revealed, and it's looking good.

The Paramount+ espionage thriller has been renewed for a second season by the network, per TVLine, although with a notable change to the name – it will now just be called Lioness, dropping the Special Ops.

The show debuted in July 2023 and at the time, Paramount reported that it had the largest global premiere for a show on the streamer, totaling six million viewers across the Paramount+ network globally in its first week.

A statement released by Paramount+ programming Executive Vice President Jeff Grossman reads: "Our Paramount+ audience resoundingly has joined forces in support of Lioness' gripping, global story and the powerhouse performances from Zoe Saldaña, Laysla De Oliveira, and Nicole Kidman."

"We cannot wait to see more of the heart-stopping suspense and action that Taylor Sheridan and the incredibly talented team deliver in its second season."

The show is being helmed by Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan and stars Zoe Saldaña, Laysla De Oliveira, Dave Annable, Jill Wagner, Nicole herself, and Morgan Freeman, who will be promoted to a series regular for the second season.

After his performances at Fontainebleau this October (and an appearance at the GoldenSky Festival in Sacramento shortly after), he is slated to take a break from the stage to presumably spend time at home with his family.
