'Marlon' renewed for Season 2 at NBC

Marlon has been renewed for a second season by NBC.

The show received solid ratings following its lead-in during its first season run, becoming the No. 1 new scripted show on the big four networks.

Deadline says the show was never in doubt, with the network and producers deciding how many episodes the second season will have and when it would return (neither have been announced yet).

Marlon is an update to the classic family comedy that centers on a loving (but inappropriate) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon, family really always does come first - even if he's the biggest kid of all.

The cast includes Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Bresha Webb, Diallo Riddle, Notlim Taylor and Amir O'Neil.
