Starring Clare Dunne, Aidan Gillen, Charlie Cox and Ciaran Hinds, the show will be broadcast in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Iberia, Latin America and the UK.
Season one of the gritty crime show has an average of over 621,000 viewers on RTÉ One and to date 2.7 million streams on RTÉ Player, making it the most successful drama in Ireland last year.
Over eight episodes, the show followed the lives of the Kinsella family, a small and tight-knit crime family embroiled in a war against a powerful drug mob boss.
"As the home of quality Irish drama, RTÉ is delighted to deliver another series of Kin to Irish audiences,” Dermot Horan Director of Acquisitions & Co-Productions for RTÉ said.
