CBS announced today that Extant has been renewed for a second season. The freshman drama will continue to air as a summer series in 2015 along with Under the Dome, which was just renewed for a third season.
"We're committed to delivering our viewers and advertisers year-round programming with a wide variety of storytelling," said CBS Entertainment Chairman, Nina Tassler. "We continue to see summer as a great place for unique concepts, innovative business models and passionate television audiences."
While Extant did not fare as well as Under the Dome did in its first two seasons, it won its 10:00pm time period with 8.64 million viewers plus it had additional viewing on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
