HBO is bringing Getting On to an end.
The premium cable network has picked up Getting On, which is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed British series of the same name, for a third and final season, TVWise has learned.
The renewal comes more than a month after Getting On wrapped its second season, which saw a slight uptick in the ratings compared to season one – with an average audience of 1.6 million viewers. Like the first two seasons, six episodes have been ordered for the show’s final run, which is set to air later this year.
Getting On follows the daily lives of nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system, skewering the petty bureaucracies of modern medical practice in America.
The US adaptation, which launched on HBO in 2013, was developed by Mark V. Olsen and hails from BBC Worldwide Productions and HBO Originals. The cast includes Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez – all of whom are returning for the final season.
