On Tuesday (Sept. 24), FX announced that it had placed a 13-episode order for Season 2 of its critically acclaimed crime thriller exploring the tensions on the US-Mexico border.

"We've been blown away by the compelling performances of Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger and the writing of Meredith Stiehm, Elwood Reid and their team, and are thrilled to be able to continue this journey for another season," Eric Schrier, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, says. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with Rich Ross, Carolyn Bernstein and everyone at Shine America."

Ross, Shine America's CEO, adds, "We're thrilled that viewers and critics alike have embraced Sonya Cross and Marco Ruiz and that our partners at FX are enthusiastically joining us for a continuation of the wild ride in Season 2.

Adapted from international hit series "Bron" (set on the border of Denmark and Sweden) by Stiehm and Reid, "The Bridge" also stars Ted Levine, Annabeth Gish and Thomas M. Wright. Season 1's 12th episode, "All About Eva," airs Wednesday, with the season finale set to air next week.
