‘Mysteries of Laura’ Renewed for Season 2 at NBC

It’s official. Debra Messing’s “Mysteries of Laura” has been renewed at NBC. The freshman dramedy will be returning for Season 2.

The news follows late night renewals Friday for “Undateable,” which will return for Season 3 with all live episodes, and medical drama “The Night Shift,” which was also given a third season.

The pickup marks the second from NBC’s comedy programming — including “Undateable” — following a slew of cancellations earlier today. The net axed freshman laffers “Marry Me” and “One Big Happy,” along with Minnie Driver’s sophomore sitcom “About A Boy.” Dramas “Constantine” and “State of Affairs” were also knocked off the slate.

Mysteries of Laura” returning is especially exciting for exec producer Greg Berlanti, as the pickup secures six shows on the air for him next season, and two at NBC. Berlanti is behind new drama “Blindspot” at The Peacock, plus CW’s returning series “The Flash” and “Arrow,” along with spinoff “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” And don’t forget CBS’ “Supergirl.”

This week, NBC also ordered three new comedies for 2015-16.
