It is being reported that ABC has topped up the second season of Splitting Up Together, ordering five more episodes of the comedy to bring its sophomore total to 18. The good news comes three episodes into its Season 2 run.

The sitcom premiered back in March as a mid-season entry with an eight episode debut outing. After a solid performance in the spring, the network opted to move the show into its regular fall lineup for the 2018-2019 season. Airing behind Black-ish on Tuesday nights at 9:30pm, ratings so far have been decent for its time slot.

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.
