Comedy Central announced today at the TCA winter press tour that The Jim Jefferies Show has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes after a 2017 freshman run that saw the late-night talk show rank as the network's top-rated new series of the season in key demographics.

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies hosts the self-titled, satirical political late-night show that takes a no-nonsense look at news and current events. Jefferies is known to film field pieces from countries around the world in order to tackle controversial topics from his uniquely-Aussie point of view.

Comedy Central has ordered 20 new episodes of The Jim Jefferies Show for Season 2, matching its Season 1 total. Look for a premiere later this year.
