HBO has renewed Jay and Mark Duplass’ comedy series Togetherness for a 10 second season, TVWise has learned.
Togetherness follows two couples living under the same roof who struggle to keep their relationships alive while pursuing their individual dreams. It is produced in-house by HBO Originals and stars Mark Duplass, Amanda Peet, Melanie Lynskey, and Steve Zissis. The executive producers are Jay and Mark Duplass, who also created the series.
“We began our love affair with HBO in our parents’ living room in 1983, and to have these brilliant creative people put a ring on our fingers with a second season of Togetherness is a real-life dream come true,” the Duplass brothers said in a statement.
While ratings data is not available at the present time, it is understood that Togetherness is the latest successful comedy launch for HBO, after struggling somewhat in that department in the past few years. It follows the successful launches of Looking and Silicon Valley, both of which also made it to second seasons.
The renewal also comes mere hours after HBO added to their drama development slate with a pilot order for Virtuoso, a classical musical drama from True Blood‘s Alan Ball which is being executive produced by Elton John and his husband David Furnish.
