undateable-season-2-renewed-nbc.JPGBill Lawrence’s multi-camera sitcom, “Undateable,” has been renewed for Season 2 on NBC. The summer comedy has held on to solid ratings throughout its freshman run after a premiere that topped network off-season ratings records in May.

Lawrence himself took to Twitter right after the news broke from NBC.

Starring Chris D’Elia and based on a book by Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle, “Undateable” is the story of a group of socially challenged guys trying to change all that. It has averaged 2.8 million viewers throughout its Thursday night airings.

With this renewal, Lawrence looks set to head into the 2014-2015 season with several shows on the air — he also executive produces “Cougar Town” and “Ground Floor.”

“Undateable” now joins the growing ranks of renewed summer series on NBC. Drama series “Night Shift” and reality series “American Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent” and “Last Comic Standing” all have renewals already.
