Showtime has renewed Episodes and Shameless for second seasons, the cable network has announced.
Episodes, a co-production between Showtime Networks in the US and the BBC in the UK, was renewed with the number of episodes to be determined at a later date. Drama Shameless was picked up for 12 season two episodes.
"The viewer loyalty and critical acclaim that has met both Shameless and Episodes since their January debuts makes it clear that these two brash and sophisticated series are burgeoning hits," said Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins.
He added: "[Shameless producer] John Wells is carving out a tone that is truly unique in the television landscape - equal parts drama and comedy. And Episodes marks the universally embraced and hilarious return to television of an inspired comedy triumvirate: Matt LeBlanc, and creators Jeffrey Klarik and David Crane.
"We are thrilled with the response to both series and eager to start planning for their second seasons."
Yes, loved it!Bhaggers wrote:Anyone catch the first episode of Season 2?
That whole scene just creased me up. The timing was so perfect from Myra.Bhaggers wrote:The scene with Myra... "mm-kay".
Really? I thought it was the least LOLworthy. But it was nice to see a bit more of a dynamic between Matt/Sean/Bev.Blondini wrote:Not as good now - but last ep was best so far of this series.
Yes I agree with this... and Myra has come into her own more...Spartan wrote:Matt making deaf sex noises was brilliant.
Loving Bev's assistant too.
To be fair, I thought it would be cancelled too. The ratings weren't very good last season but LeBlanc's Golden Globe probably ensured that this got a thrid season.

I hope we see Carol in charge of the network and plenty more Myra!
