Showtime has announced that critically praised dramedy SMILF has been renewed for a second season, which should debut next fall.
“From its first episode, the refreshingly honest point of view of SMILF broke through with audiences, the press and on social media,” said Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks. “Frankie Shaw is a creative force to be reckoned with and we love having her on Showtime. Her show is funny and forthright, pointed and poignant, irreverent and relevant, all at once. We can’t wait to see where Frankie takes SMILF next season.”

While a renewal decision has come in on one of Showtime’s fall newbies, fellow Sunday half-hour White Famous remains in limbo.

SMILF airs Sundays at 10:00 on Showtime.
