HBO announced today that Avenue 5 has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes less than a month after the space comedy debuted its freshman run, which has so far been garnering a generally positive critical reception.

Set 40 years in the future, the series follows a luxury space cruise ship during a time when space tourism is all the rage. Captain Ryan Clark, played by Hugh Laurie, and his crew must work to deal with disgruntled passengers, unexpected events, and each other, after experiencing technical difficulties onboard.

Look for Season 2 of Avenue 5 in 2021.
