NBC announced today that The Carmichael Show has been renewed for a third season. After a delay due to negotiations around the number of episodes, the network has picked up 13 episodes of the comedy for the 2016-2017 season. Season 2, which airs its finale on May 29, also got 13 episodes.

While ratings for The Carmichael Show have been modest, it has continued to garner high critical acclaim in its second season. Today's renewal makes it only the second NBC comedy returning next season - the other being Superstore.
