CBS announced this evening that freshman thriller Salvation has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes after a 13-episode summer run that, while only garnering so-so ratings, did draw fairly consistent viewership for the network on Wednesday nights.

The series follows the events following the discovery of an enormous asteroid that is only six months away from colliding with Earth. An MIT grad student teams up with a tech billionaire to try to save humanity from the potentially-catastrophic event.

Another 13 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Salvation, which will return in the summer of 2018.
