Marlon Wayans is staying put on NBC.
The comedian, who just scored a Netflix standup special earlier this week, will return to NBC for a second season of his comedy “Marlon,” reports Variety.
Wayans stars as a father dedicated to co-parenting with his very well-organized ex-wife, played by Essence Atkins.
The sitcom premiered this summer to strong ratings, averaging a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day numbers. It became the most watched new scripted series on broadcast this summer.
Bresha Webb, Diallo Riddle, Notlim Taylor and Amir O’Neil co-star in the series, which is produced by Universal Television, and executive produced by writer Christopher Moynihan, Wayans, Rick Alvarez and Michael Rotenberg.
As previously reported, Wayans will film his Netflix standup special this fall from Washington, D.C.
