USA Network Renews 'Satisfaction' For 10-Episode Season 2, 'Rush' Canceled

Matt Passmore stars in Satisfaction.
USA Network today announced a 10-episode second season order for the sexy one-hour hit original drama series Satisfaction, a postmodern love story centered around a married couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore, The Glades) and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak, The Devil Wears Prada) and the unconventional choices they make to keep their relationship intact.

"Satisfaction sparked a cultural conversation about modern love and marriage in today's world," said USA Network President Chris McCumber. "We're excited to see where Sean Jablonski takes this thought-provoking series in season two."

"Sean Jablonski and Russ Krasnoff, Matt Passmore, Stephanie Szostak and the rest of our world-class creative team on Satisfaction have led us on a fascinating storytelling journey that our studio is excited to continue bringing to life," said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "USA is a fantastic partner in creating programming that we believe will stand the test of time."

Satisfaction drew a loyal and consistent audience since its July 17 debut, averaging 2.21MM total viewers P2+ L7 season-to-date, with the penultimate episode reaching a series high 2.43MM total viewers P2+, 1.09MM P18-49 and 1.13MM P25-54 (L7 data for the finale is not yet available). On average, the series registered particularly high double-digit growth in L7 lifts of +74% P18-49, +75% P25-54, +60% P18-34 and +58% in P2+ season-to-date.

In Satisfaction, investment advisor Neil Truman (Passmore) and his wife Grace (Szostak) are sifting through their stagnant relationship when Neil discovers that Grace has been seeing a male escort. After an unusual chain of events, he gains a new perspective on his life and what motivates women, while Grace contemplates whether her needs are being met and if her marriage is worth saving. The series concluded its 10-episode freshman season on September 18, with a shocking cliffhanger leaving Neil and Grace dealing with a major fallout from their secrets.

Satisfaction also stars Michelle DeShon (Hollywood Heights), Katherine LaNasa (The Campaign), Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) and Deanna Russo (Knight Rider).

From Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski (Suits, Nip Tuck), Satisfaction is shot on location in Atlanta, GA. Russ Krasnoff (Community) of Krasnoff/Foster also serves as executive producer.

Satisfaction season one is currently available via digital download, On Demand and on USANetwork.com to authenticated cable subscribers. Season one will also be available on DVD in early 2015.

Rush has been canceled by the network.
