Showtime announced today that Black Monday has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes a month after the conclusion of the comedy's freshman run, which ended up with decidedly mixed reviews.

The half-hour series is named after Monday, October 19, 1987, which was the date of the worst stock market crash in Wall Street's history. The show follows a group of outsiders who went up against the blue-blood, old boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world's largest financial system.

Production on Season 2 of Black Monday is slated to begin later this year for an expected return in early 2020.
