Marvel director and star Taika Waititi's new show Reservation Dogs has had its fate revealed while season one finishes its run.

Airing on FX on Hulu in the US and expected to land on Disney+ internationally, this comedy follows four Indigenous American teenagers in rural Oklahoma who steal and rob in order to save in the hopes of escaping the exotic, mysterious and faraway land of California.

Co-created by Waititi and Sterlin Harjo, who also executive produces, the series premiered at the start of August and is still airing its first season. However, it's already proven popular with fans, prompting FX to renew it for a second run, reports TVLine.

"We couldn't wait to share Reservation Dogs with viewers and are thrilled that they seem to love it as much as we do," said the network's president of original programming, Nick Grad.

"We're happy to put in an early order for another season," he confirmed, adding: "Sterlin Harjo delivered on his creative vision, partnering with Taika Waititi and the rest of the creative team, the brilliant cast and crew to create one of TV's best new comedies and a groundbreaking showcase of representation and raw talent."

The cast of this original show includes Devery Jacobs, D'Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Lane Factor and Paulina Alexis as the main characters, with every writer, director and series regular on the show also Indigenous.

"I consider this a comedy with some dramatic elements to it… and having an all‑Indigenous room helped us not be afraid to go hard and tell the truth, and also to be funny and push the envelope," Harjo previously told the publication. "We were able to pull from our own experiences and make it real.

"For me, it's about Native kids being able to watch this show and identify, and see themselves reflected on the screen, something that none of us grew up having," he added.

"It's important to feel seen, and it's important to see yourself reflected. It's going to be different, but there's a lot of universal truths that not just Native people can identify with in this show."
