Seems like there were two television renewals yesterday. First, TV Land has renewed sitcom The Soul Man for a 12-episode fourth season, the most since the show’s first. Season two of the Cedric the Entertainer starrer featured ten episodes while the current third season featured eight. While the show isn’t as big of a hit as flagship series Hot in the Cleveland, the spin-off has found its core audience. The third season debuted earlier this year with a special live episode.
Also, NBC has renewed frosh summer series Welcome to Sweden for a 10-episode second season. The series, an import from TV4 in Sweden, has been a critical hit and boasts guest stars like Will Ferrell and Patrick Duffy. The show follows Greg Poehler (the brother of series executive producer Amy) as he moves with his girlfriend to her home country of Sweden. The show is semi-autobiographical as Poehler did indeed move with his girlfriend to Sweden back in 2006.
