Peacock announced today that Rutherford Falls has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes two months after the comedy released its 10-episode freshman run, which received an overall positive reception from critics.

The half-hour series follows the lives of the residents of a small Northeast town and the Native American reservation it borders. Things are shaken up when the town namesake, local legend Nathan Rutherford, fights the moving of a historical statue of his patriarchal ancestor.

Today's renewal makes Rutherford Falls the third Peacock original comedy to earn a second season. 'Saved by the Bell' and 'Girls5eva' were both picked up for Season 2 earlier this year.

Look for Season 2 of Rutherford Falls in 2022.
