Quibi may not have survived, but the shows which populated the short-lived streaming service have lived on as Roku Originals. After Roku purchased Quibi earlier this year, they relaunched many of the shows, and Kevin Hart's Die Hart scored the biggest ever debut on the service. Roku have now announced that Die Hart has been renewed for a second season, which will appropriately be titled, Die Harter.

"Die Hart exploded out of the gate and after a spectacular debut weekend, has quickly become one of the most watched Roku Originals on The Roku Channel," said Colin Davis, Roku’s Head of Original Scripted Programming. "We couldn’t be more excited to bring an equally hilarious, action-packed second season to the record number of viewers who have watched in recent days." Kevin Hart will once again star in the series, but he'll also be executive producing the second season through his LOL Studios. "It’s been great to see the incredible response to ‘Die Hart’ on The Roku Channel," said Hart. "We’re excited to be partnering with Roku to bring another season to its audience."

The first season of Die Hart found Kevin Hart playing a fictionalized version of himself who’s tired of being the comedic sidekick. He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic. Pushed to his limits by this action school coach and a tough-minded rival student (Nathalie Emmanuel) Kevin must survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime. The series had actually already been renewed for a second season by Quibi, but that was obviously called into question when the streaming service crashed and burned.
