EXCLUSIVE: CNN is picking up a second season of United States of Scandal with Jake Tapper, with plans for another series run in 2025.

The CNN Original Series, which aired on Sunday night, spotlighted figures like former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, who talked about their experiences in the firestorm of political scandal.

The announcement of the next season was to be made at the Warner Bros. Discovery upfront today.

In a statement, Tapper said, “One thing our culture will never run dry of is scandal, so I am thrilled for the opportunity to dig into even more fascinating stories for season two. I was delighted to see audiences respond to these stories of human frailty as much as I have.” On the Deadline ElectionLine podcast, Tapper said that the topic of scandal lended itself not just to politics but other sectors as well.

The show also spotlighted other controversies surrounding figures like John Edwards and Eliot Spitzer.

The series, produced by The Intellectual Property Corporation, a part of Sony Pictures Television, averaged 117,000 viewers in the 25-54 demo when it ran this year, topping rivals in its time slot. It averaged 678,000 total viewers, ahead of MSNBC.

The series is executive produced by Aaron Saidman and Eli Holzman for IPC; and Tapper, Amy Entelis, Lyle Gamm and Katie Hinman for CNN.
