HBO has renewed its dark comedy Getting On for a second season, the show's producers announced. Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash, and Mel Rodriguez will all be back for another six episodes — which feels scanty, but the first season was also only six episodes, so this is just the world we live in now. The show is set among the doctors, nurses, and patients who populate the geriatric wing of a run-down hospital, which makes it sound a lot sadder than it actually is. It's not that sad!
