We certainly enjoyed FX's slow-burning border drama remake 'The Bridge' through its first two seasons, even with some admitted stumbling through the inaugural year, but the network appears to have lost patience.

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the border of FX's US-Mexico drama 'The Bridge,' which since ordered a second season of the danish series remake starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir. Now, the first trailer has arrived for 'The Bridge' season 2, teasing even more international violence for the July premiere.
FX border drama remake 'The Bridge' hasn't quite captured the hearts and minds of some of the cable network's other audiences, but will officially gain a second chance in 2014.

When you're an Academy award nominee, it definitely gives you a leg up when it comes to casting. Even if it was something of a stunt nomination, you're going to get at least another role or two because you can be sold as "Academy Award Nominee so and so" (for instance, let's say Gabourey Sidibe). Demian Bichir got the nod for his work in 'A Better Life' and now he's got two new projects, 'Machete Kills' and William Friedkin's 'Trapped.'
