CBS announced today that Superior Donuts has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which premiered last month as a midseason entry, has been a solid addition to the network's Monday night lineup through its first eight episodes.
Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch as an old-school owner of a Chicago donut shop that hasn't changed since it first opened in 1969. And as his shop has stayed frozen in time, the neighborhood around it is changing. But now starting to fall on hard times, he starts to let his enterprising young employee help bring his business into the 21st century.
Look for the show to return in the 2017-2018 season, though it is not clear yet if CBS will keep it as a midseason entry or move it to its regular fall lineup.
