NBC announced today that The Irrational has been renewed for Season 2. The pickup is no surprise, as the drama ranks as the #1 new show of the season in total viewers. Currently on a midseason hiatus, its remaining four freshman episodes will resume in the new year on January 29.

Based on the book 'Predictably Irrational' by Dan Ariely, the series follows world-renowned professor of behavioral science, Alec Mercer, who lends his expertise on high-stakes cases involving governments, law enforcement and corporations. His insight and unconventional approach to understanding human behavior lead him and the team on unexpected journeys to solve illogical puzzles and perplexing mysteries.

Look for Season 2 of The Irrational next fall as part of NBC's 2024-2025 lineup.
