The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik’s Call Me Kat has been renewed by Fox for a second season.
Before the comedy series, which sees Bialik play a woman who’s struggling to convince her mother – and society, in general – that she’s happy being single, returns for new episodes however, it’s set to replace The Big C‘s Darlene Hunt as showrunner.
Inspired by British sitcom Miranda, which starred Miranda Hart, Lucifer‘s Tom Ellis and Sarah Hadland, Call Me Kat sees the titular character quit her job as a University of Louisville lecturer and spend the money her parents had set aside for her wedding to open a cat café.
Will her owning her own business convince them she doesn’t need a man to lead a fulfilling life?
Julian Gant (Real Steel), Swoosie Kurtz (Pushing Daisies), Kyla Pratt (Doctor Dolittle), Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story) and Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) appear opposite Bialik, who produces with her former co-star Jim Parsons.
“We are excited to renew Call Me Kat and have Mayim, Cheyenne, Swoosie, Leslie, Kyla and Julian return for their second season together. They share a winning chemistry that we, and viewers, adore,” said Fox president of entertainment Michael Thorn.
“On behalf of everyone here at Fox, congratulations to this incredible cast and our terrific partners at Warner Bros on delivering this season’s No. 1 new comedy.”
Later, Bialik shared the news on her Instagram page, alongside the caption: “Pretty darn good way to start off the week!!”
