Fox announced today that Call Me Kat has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just over a month after the Mayim Bialik comedy wrapped its freshman run, which ended up drawing mixed reviews. Viewership was strong though, as it ranked as one of the season's top new comedies.

The half-hour series stars Bialik as a 39-year-old single woman who struggles every day against society to prove that she can live a fulfilling life on her own. Which is why she spent all her savings to open a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky. But her plans for independence hit a snag when her former crush and good friend returns to town and works as a bartender at the piano bar across the street.

Today's renewal comes with word that showrunner Darlene Hunt will be stepping down moving forward, with a replacement yet to be named. Look for Season 2 of Call Me Kat as part of the 2021-2022 television season.
