Netflix has renewed Survival of the Thickest for Season 2. The good news was announced by co-creator and star Michelle Buteau in a video posted to the streamer's X account. The show released its 13-episode freshman run last July to an overall positive reception.

Inspired by Buteau's collection of comedic essays, the series follows Mavis Beaumont, a proudly thick New Yorker who unexpectedly finds herself single and having to rebuild her life. But with the support of her chosen family, this aspiring stylist is determined to not only survive, but thrive on her own terms.
