NBC announced today that Mr. Mayor has been picked up for a second season. The news comes just under a month after the comedy wrapped its freshman run, which ultimately garnered a mixed reception from critics. The show's original 13-episode order was cut short due to the ongoing pandemic, which is why Season 1 only released nine episodes in total.

Co-created by Tina Fey, the series stars Ted Danson as Neil Bremer, a retired businessman who runs for mayor of Los Angeles so he can shake up City Hall with some of his great ideas. But after pulling out a surprise victory, he has to figure out exactly what he stands for, gain the respect of his biggest critic, and connect with his teenage daughter - all while navigating the tricky political landscape of America's second weirdest city.

Look for Season 2 of Mr. Mayor as part of the 2021-2022 season.
