There’s good news for “Salvation” fans from CBS today. The network officially announced the second season renewal of the suspense thriller, which is currently set to broadcast during the summer of 2018. As it stands right now, season two of the serialized drama will have 13-episodes in the second season.

If you’re new to the series, “Salvation” centers on Liam Cole, an MIT grad student, and Darius Tanz, a tech superstar, who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows a staggering discovery. That discovery is that an asteroid is just months away from colliding with Earth. Now with the added threat of nuclear war on the horizon, they work together with Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards to find a way to divert the asteroid, stop the war and save humanity before time runs out.

The series stars Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Rachel Drance and Ian Anthony Dale. Liz Kruger, Craig Shapiro, Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Stuart Gillard and Peter Lenkov are executive producers for CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout. Fans will have to wait until the summer of 2018 to watch the new episodes, but that should give everyone else plenty of time to watch the first season or catch up on any missed episodes.

The series is one of the newest additions to CBS’s popular lineup. The network still has quite a few long-lasting favorites on the schedule. Shows like “The Big Bang Theory,” “Blue Bloods,” “Elementary,” “Mom,” “Hawaii Five-0,” and all of the “NCIS” versions are helping to continue the success of the newer series like “Bull,” “Scorpion,” “SEAL Team,” “Wisdom of the Crowd,” “Doubt,” “Kevin Can Wait,” “Code Black,” “MacGyver,” “Me, Myself and I, “Superior Donuts,” and “Young Sheldon”. That’s not even including the reality hits like “The Amazing Race,” “Big Brother,” “Survivor,” and “Undercover Boss” that have kept viewers coming back for more each year.
