That’s up 5% from the week prior and up 3% versus the show’s post-Super Bowl audience average. The series kicked off in February with a larger-than-life premiere audience, thanks to a lead-in from the Chiefs-49ers game.

Paramount says live streaming across Paramount+ and CBS digital apps saw a boost as well. Tracker gained 77% on the broadcast finale that aired in this time period last year, which was East New York.

It’s no surprise that Tracker received an early Season 2 renewal back in March. Deadline spoke with Hartley about the dramatic conclusion, which he says will usher in a “bigger mystery” in Season 2.

The series, based on the bestselling novel The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver, stars Hartley as Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a reward seeker, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family.

Hartley, Ken Olin, Elwood Reid and Ben Winters serve as executive producers. Tracker airs on CBS and is available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
