The new comedy will return for Season 2.
September 28, 2017
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.

I tried watching this show but could never get into it. I'm totally surprised that this would be picked up but The Night Shift wouldn't....

Wow! This show is terrible. The Carmichael Show was way better than this crap.

The acting just seems to forced to me. It had its spots but just to awkward.

Except for the ex-wife, who is a major piece of ass, the show is terrible. Bad writing, predictable scenarios, and Marlon making dumb faces all the time are just three things that make it that way.

I will never understand the taste of some people... I mean... there are those who enjoy fecal play... I just don't get the appeal.

It's a good rating for Summer. Summer ratings are a completely different beast compared to the regular TV season ratings. Glad this got picked up as Marlon Wayans & Essence Atkins are always enjoyable.
Now NBC just announce Season 5 for The Night Shift ;)

.. and since when is a 1.0 a GOOD rating??? That's like being the lest smelly turd.

Okay.. what dirt does Marlon have on which NBC executive??? I can only imagine this got renewed due to some extortion tactic, because it's an utterly horrible show. Or is it that NBC realized how lily white their programming is and ANYTHING not white is a keeper even if it's complete garbage??
