BET has announced that Tyler Perry's The Oval has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes midway through the soapy drama's freshman run, which has been garnering solid ratings despite being met with mixed reviews.

The series follows Hunter Franklin, who has just been elected President of the United States thanks to help from influential people. As he and his seemingly-perfect family move into their new residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., its not long before they shake things up, affecting the lives of the staff who focus on the inner workings of the nation's most iconic residence.

Production on Season 2 of The Oval is slated to start in July, which points to a probable premiere in the fall.
