Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that Love Is _ has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes six episodes into the romantic drama's freshman run, which has thus far been faring well for the cable network.

The show's debut episode on June 19 tallied 1.2 million viewers and garnered a strong showing in its target demographic of women 25-54. It is growing its audience as well, with its July 17 episode hitting series highs in total viewers as well as key age categories.

The story of Love Is _ is told from the perspective of present-day couple Nuri and Yasir, looking back 20 years to when they were both chasing their dreams in 1990s Los Angeles. Times were different back then, and who they are now reflects the way the social issues and vibrant black culture of that time aligned to shape them into the successful couple they eventually became.

New episodes are currently airing on Tuesday nights at 10:00pm, with the season finale scheduled for August 21. Look for Season 2 of Love Is _ in 2019.
