ABC announced today that Splitting Up Together has been renewed for a second season. The pickup makes it the network's only new comedy to return for the 2018-2019 season.

The show has gotten off to a solid start since its March premiere, airing in the 9:30pm time slot on Tuesday nights after Black-ish, which was also renewed today. While reviews have been mixed, ratings have been healthy through its first six episodes.

Splitting Up Together follows Martin and Lena, a couple once in love and happily married. But as time wore on they drifted apart, eventually divorcing but keeping their house to co-parent their three kids. But as Lena starts dating, Martin realizes the part he played in their failed marriage and starts making an effort to atone for his missteps.
