It is being reported that NBC has renewed Marlon for a second season. The freshman comedy just recently concluded a 10-episode summer run that fared quite well for the peacock network. Airing back-to-back episodes on Wednesday nights, the series averaged a 1.0 in the adults 18-49 demographic and 5.6 million viewers (Live+Same day). Those numbers rank it as the summer's top new scripted series among the 'Big 4' broadcast networks.

Loosely-based on the life of comedian Marlon Wayans, Marlon follows a loving, yet somewhat immature, father dedicated to co-parenting his two kids with his ex-wife, whose life is considerably more put together than his is. While his larger-than-life personality and ill-advised advice might not always be embraced by his kids, Marlon's love for his family is undeniable as he works to balance his fatherly duties with his Internet fame.

While details on Season 2 have not yet been formalized, word is that NBC could move Marlon from a summer slot into its regular fall lineup for the 2018-2019 season with a possible increase in episode count to go along with it. But we won't get any official word on that until sometime next year.
