Shooter is an American television drama series based on the 2007 film of the same name and the novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. The show stars Ryan Phillippe in the lead role of Bob Lee Swagger, an expert marksman living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. USA Network picked up the pilot in August 2015 and ordered the pilot to series in February 2016.
The series was originally set to premiere on July 19, 2016, but was postponed a week to July 26, due to the July 7 Dallas shootings. Following the Baton Rouge police officer shootings on July 17, the series was pulled from USA's summer schedule entirely. On October 3, 2016, USA announced the new premiere date for Shooter would be November 15, 2016. On December 19, 2016, the series was renewed for a second season which premiered on July 18, 2017.
