This season has already brought us several great new TV series and there’s still plenty more to come. But audiences don’t necessarily have to wait until later in the year to find out which of these new titles will be returning. These freshman comedies and dramas have all performed well enough to earn an early second season renewal from their respective networks. Below, check out 16 new TV shows that will definitely be back with more episodes.
It should come as no surprise that FX’s new comedy, created by and starring Donald Glover, has been greenlit for a sophomore season. Since its debut in September, the semi-autobiographical series has earned widespread critical acclaim, scoring a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The show has also been a solid ratings performer for the network, recognized as the most-watched basic cable primetime comedy premiere in over three years in the key 18 to 49 demographic. Given its early success, it’s clear why FX issued a renewal after only a few episodes.
