The Carmichael Show has been picked up for a second season, the network announced Monday. In a press release by Jennifer Salk
“This show made a big impact with viewers and critics because it’s funny and relatable but also because it’s fearless about discussing issues that are significant in the world today.”
According to NBC, the 9 p.m. episode on Wednesday was the most-watched summer comedy on the Big 4 networks in eight years. It tied for the No. 1 summer comedy over that span in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
Co-created by Carmichael and Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller, season 1 earned garnered generally positive reception in its six-episode debut season.
But Mr Robinson starring Craig Robinson from the Office was not so lucky and NBC will not be renewing the show for a second season.
