It is being reported that TBS has renewed People of Earth for a second season. The good news comes a week ahead of the freshman comedy's first-season finale, which airs in back-to-back episodes next Monday.
That will wrap up a successful 10-episode debut run that saw the show become one of the Top 10 new cable comedies of 2016 in the adults 18-49 demographic, thanks to continued growth over the course of the season. When factoring in all of its viewing platforms, each episode of the series currently reaches an audience of 4.3 million people.
People of Earth follows a journalist who starts investigating an alien abductee support group. His initial skepticism subsides after digging deeper into their bizarre claims, to the point where he realizes that there may be evidence of his own alien abduction.
10 new episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of People of Earth, which will likely return later in 2017.
