Get your renewals here. Fresh, hot renewals. NBC has renewed Marlon Wayans’ Marlon TV show for a second season. The first season of this summer sitcom premiered on August 16th, and ran for 10 episodes, with the Marlon season one finale airing on September 13, 2017.
A scripted NBC comedy series, Marlon stars Wayans, Essence Atkins, Notlim Taylor, Amir O’Neil, Bresha Webb, and Diallo Riddle. The story centers on internet superstar Marlon Wayne (Wayans), who is a caring — if unconventional — father. He and his ex-wife Ashley (Atkins) are committed to having a happy divorce, as they parent their teenaged daughter Marley (Taylor) and younger son, Zack (O’Neil).
Marlon: A Look at the Ratings
The first season of Marlon averaged a 1.07 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.27 million viewers. Season one earned higher ratings in the 18-49 year old viewer demo than any of NBC’s other scripted summer TV series. In fact, Marlon‘s demo numbers even bested unscripted fare including The Wall, Hollywood Game Night, Little Big Shots: Forever Young, Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge, and the news program Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.
Whether NBC will order a longer second season, and whether Marlon season two will continue as a summer series, is still up in the air.
