TruTV didn’t wait long to renew its first scripted series, greenlighting a second season of Those Who Can’t months before the show's premiere.
The series, which centers on three trouble-making high school teachers, will debut Feb. 11. TruTv said Tuesday it has picked up 13 additional episodes of the series, executively produced by Dean Lorey, that will air later in 2016.
The network has also ordered a pilot from Lorey dubbed Shady Neighbors, said truth officials.
“We love Those Who Can’t so much we literally couldn’t wait to make more,” said Chris Linn, president for truTV in a statement “Working with Dean has been an incredible experience, and we look forward to developing new projects with him as we continue to take truTV further into the scripted arena.”
Other truTv pilots in development include an untitled medical comedy from comedian Tom Segura and a pilot script from Melissa Hunter (YouTube series Adult Wednesday Addams), said network officials.
