TNT has renewed legal drama Franklin & Bash for a sophomore season, ordering 10 installments.
Starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer as young, unconventional lawyers, the series premiered on June 1 and has averaged 3.9 million viewers, including 1.8 million in both the person 18-to-49 and adult 25-to-54 demos, according to Nielsen live + 7 data. Those deliveries rank Franklin & Bash among basic cable's top five new summer series, according to network officials.
"This summer, Franklin & Bash has broken out as a hugely entertaining series with great characters, sharp writing and a terrific cast," said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming, for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies in announcing the renewal. "We're thrilled that the show has drawn such a remarkably strong following and look forward to bringing it back next summer."
