ABC has renewed Body of Proof for a second season. The series can now breathe a sigh of relief after the network cancelled seven of its other shows earlier in the day.

Body of Proof premiered as a mid-season replacement in late March and has fared quite admirably over the course of its first eight episodes, averaging a 2.3 in the adults 18-49 demographic. The show follows a top-flight neurosurgeon who becomes a medical examiner after a career-ending accident.

Star Dana Delany took to Twitter after the announcement with the following message: "Thank you with all my heart to all of you for helping [Body of Proof] get a second season. I'll be celebrating in NOLA tonight! As usual."

The show wraps up its first season next Tuesday, May 17 at 10:00pm.
