HBO has renewed "Luck," its newest drama from "Deadwood" creator David Milch, for a second, 10-episode season.

The renewal of the racetrack drama, whose stars include Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, comes just two days after its official Sunday debut and follows a pattern HBO's established with other recent dramas -- renewal as promotional tool.

In other words, we told you lots and lots about "Luck" last week, and now we're reminding you that it's on next week, too -- and that the network's backing this horse to make it to the finish line.
