Some good news today for fans of freshman drama Touch. Fox has renewed the Kiefer Sutherland-led series for a second season.

Touch officially premiered in March after airing a special preview episode back in January. Its 12-episode first season is scheduled to air its finale at the end of this month on May 31. Before today's news the show had been considered a toss-up for renewal, as its ratings have never been more than mediocre. After cancelling Alcatraz and The Finder earlier today, Fox obviously has more faith in the future of Touch than the aforementioned two series.

There is no word on the number of episodes ordered or a return date at this time.
