FX has renewed freshman series Wilfred for a second season consisting of 13 episodes. The pick-up was a no-brainer for the network, as the Elijah Wood-led series has become FX's highest-rated first-season comedy ever, averaging 5 million viewers per week.

Wilfred premiered back in June and has so far aired seven of its 13 first-season episodes. The show is an adaptation of the critically-acclaimed Australian series of the same name, and follows a troubled young man who forms a unique friendship with his neighbor's dog, who appears to him as a man in a dog suit.

No timetable has been set for the show's Season 2 launch.
