Historically grounded plot

It shows specifically that the Alamo is not the end of the story, but only its start. In the 30s of the nineteenth century, the west side of the Mississippi was reckoned to be the Wild West and the Texas frontier was a true hell on earth that was making people die for independence.
This was a time period when the residents of Texas were showing their bravery, a time to die for what you put faith in and struggle against the Mexican General Santa Anna and his forces.
How many people were drawn in by the series?
The series was unexpectedly received with flying flowers. The healthy amount of viewership is another proof to this statement. As for today, it constitutes about 4 million watchers. This number was garnered during the release of the first and so far the latest season.
When can we expect the announcement of the renewal?
With the reviews from critics and ordinary viewers being pretty favorable, it is more than probable that the series will be revived for the second installment. The Texas Rising season 2 release date remain so far unknown, surely. We should wait for it becoming clear sometime in the future.
