Planet Green's The Fabulous Beekman Boys, wrapping its first season on Wednesday, will return for 10 more episodes the first half of next year, the network said.

The show, about New York City couple Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell's efforts to become "gentleman farmers" in Sharon Springs, N.Y., debuted on June 16 on the Discovery-owned network.

Laura Michalchyshyn, the network's president and general manager, described the show as "a cornerstone franchise" in announcing its renewal.

Here's the network's description: "The initial season followed Josh, a best-selling author and advertising executive, and his partner, Brent, a physician and former vice president at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, as they left Manhattan behind for the country life at the Beekman 1802 farm.

"Season two will follow them -- along with viewer favorites Farmer John and Polka Spot the llama -- as they juggle their relationship, along with a burgeoning home business and a rapidly expanding working farm. From raising a barn to hosting a Sotheby's auction to shopping for sheep with Martha Stewart, season two will offer complete access to Brent and Josh's second year at Beekman 1802."

On Wednesday (Aug. 11), Planet Green will show episodes 1-9 in order starting at noon. The season finale airs at 9 p.m. ET.
