NBC has announced a renewal for one of its comedy series. Deadline.com reports that the Peacock Network picked up a second season of “Welcome to Sweden.”
The renewal comes after the network renewed two other summer freshman shows, having already picked up “The Night Shift” and “Undateable” for additional seasons, the report notes.
The network is giving a 10-episode second-season order to “Welcome to Sweden.”
The series, which was originally produced for a Swedish network, was created by Greg Poehler and is executive produced by his sister, “Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler. The show has been what the piece calls an “OK” ratings performer, at least by summer standards, averaging 3.5 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among viewers 18-49.
“‘Welcome to Sweden’ is generating an upscale audience, indexing at 105 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (most current),” the piece notes.
