AMC announced today that Lodge 49 has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just days ahead of the dramedy's freshman finale, which airs this Monday.

The hour-long series premiered in August for a 10-episode run that has garnered plenty of critical acclaim for its mix of light-hearted humor and satisfying storytelling. Ratings have been on the lower side, however, as it has struggled to find a sizeable audience in its post-Better Call Saul time slot on Monday nights.

Lodge 49 is a modern fable that follows Sean 'Dud' Dudley, a charming ex-surfer from Long Beach, California. Meandering in life since his father's death and the collapse of the family business, Dud ends up at a rundown fraternal lodge. There, a plumbing salesman introduces him to newfound friendships that just might help Dud find his missing sense of purpose and get his life back on track.

AMC has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2, which will return in 2019.
