Well that certainly took a while. According to Deadline, the USA network has finally given the go ahead for a second season of Playing House. The rookie sitcom debuted this year with a ten-episode season and, while the ratings were low, the series garnered very well received. Now after more than six months since the season one finale, USA has ordered eight more episodes which will premiere first on video-on-demand platforms, then on the network.
Playing House joins Sirens and Benched as fellow survivors to USA’s pullout on original scripted comedy to return to a more drama-based line-up. Dynamic duo Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham created and star in the series inspired by their real-life friendship. St. Clair stars as Emma who leaves her successful business in China to help her newly divorced best friend, Parham, raise her unborn baby.
Season two will return in the fall of 2015.
