E! has announced that After Lately will be returning for a second season. The mocku-series premiered on the network in early March, and blends reality and improv as a way to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of talk show Chelsea Lately.

"It's exciting for us to announce that we're going back into production on additional episodes," said Lisa Berger, President of Entertainment Programming for E!. "From the outrageous situations to the always unpredictable cast of characters, we are looking forward to what Season 2 will bring."

After Lately averaged almost one million viewers over the course of its first season, which wrapped on April 24. A premiere date for the show's second season has yet to be announced.
