Showtime announced today during their TCA presentation that Work in Progress has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes near the end of the comedy's freshman run, which concludes later this month.

The new half-hour series premiered in December and has been met with a healthy amount of praise from both critics and viewers. Co-created and written by Abby McEnany, the show follows Abby, who is played by McEnany in a semi-autobiographical role, as a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke with OCD whose despair and bad luck unexpectedly finds her in a new and vibrantly-transformative relationship with a young trans guy.

No return date has been set for Season 2 of Work in Progress, but it could drop late this year or early in 2021. For now, the show has two episodes remaining in Season 1, with the season finale set for January 26.
