The new comedy will return for Season 2.
December 13, 2016
It is being reported that TBS has renewed People of Earth for a second season. The good news comes a week ahead of the freshman comedy's first-season finale, which airs in back-to-back episodes next Monday.
That will wrap up a successful 10-episode debut run that saw the show become one of the Top 10 new cable comedies of 2016 in the adults 18-49 demographic, thanks to continued growth over the course of the season. When factoring in all of its viewing platforms, each episode of the series currently reaches an audience of 4.3 million people.
People of Earth follows a journalist who starts investigating an alien abductee support group. His initial skepticism subsides after digging deeper into their bizarre claims, to the point where he realizes that there may be evidence of his own alien abduction.
10 new episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of People of Earth, which will likely return later in 2017.

It's an ok show. Not hilarious but not boring either. I agree with another poster who said it's no The Detour or Wrecked, but it's not awful. I'll tune in for season 2.

It's funny and clever in a sophisticated, subtle way! I am most relieved to hear of the renewal.

I don't know what these others are talking abou. I for one can't wait for season 2. This show has more breadth and depth for a comedy than I've seen in a long time. These other posters are paid government lackeys trying to squelch the coming alien 'encounter'.

Boring show, wish it was M.I.B.

It's okay... I mean I'll watch season 2... but it's no The Detour or Wrecked, that's for certain.

I gave up on this piece of garbage after 3 episodes, which was 2 episodes too many! It won't get a 3rd!
