CBS announced today that Season 2 of Superior Donuts will be getting more episodes added to it. The good news comes four weeks into the comedy's sophomore run and adds nine episodes to its original order of 13, bringing its total up to 22.

The series premiered early this year as a midseason entry and quickly proved to be a solid addition to the network's Monday night lineup. Its first season performed well enough for CBS to upgrade the show from midseason status to a regular fall entry for 2017-2018. Airing Monday nights at 9:00pm, Season 2 has been drawing ratings that are close to where it left off in Season 1.

Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch as an old-school owner of a donut shop in Chicago that hasn't seen much change since it first opened in the sixties. But while his shop remained frozen in time, the neighborhood around it was changing. With the business starting to fall on hard times, he starts to let his enterprising young employee help bring his shop into the 21st century.
