TV Land has announced that Happily Divorced has been renewed for a second season of 12 new episodes. The pickup comes just five episodes into the show's first season, which premiered last month.

"We are thrilled that our viewers have embraced ‘Happily Divorced’ just like they did with ‘Hot In Cleveland,’" said network president Larry W. Jones in a press release. "It's fantastic that we get to keep working with Fran, this amazing cast and all of the talented writers on another season."

Happily Divorced is TV Land's third original scripted series, after Hot in Cleveland and Retired at 35. It stars and is co-written by Fran Drescher, who plays a florist moving on with her life after finding out her husband of 18 years is gay.
