After receiving some of the worst reviews of the season, The Mysteries of Laura had a very unimpressive year in the ratings and could have easily been cancelled. But, luckily for the fans, it’s been renewed for a second season anyway.
The Mysteries of Laura revolves around a brilliant-but-harried NYPD homicide detective (Debra Messing) who must also juggle her home life, including raising her young twin boys and trying to divorce her husband. The rest of the cast includes Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso, Janina Gavankar, Max Jenkins, Vincent Reina, and Charlie Reina.
The series debuted in September and drew a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.19 million viewers. It was an okay start but the ratings have come way down over the course of the season. This week’s edition hit a new low with a 0.9 rating and 6.04 million viewers. It is however the network’s second most-watched scripted series according to the season averages.
While Mysteries of Laura has been renewed for a second season, word is that it’s only been given a 13 episode order. The network execs likely want to see how things go when the series returns before making a bigger commitment.
