June 12, 2014 by Mike McNamara
The long-awaited verdict on SIRENS is in... and it's more great news for Chicago.
The NBC/Universal-owned USA cable network has renewed the comedy from exec producers Denis Leary and Bob Fisher for a second season. The series wrapped its run May 1 and ranks as basic cable's No. 1 new comedy of the year among total viewers, averaging 1.62 million total viewers and 870,000 viewers among adults 25-54.
“SIRENS resonated with a broad fan base, and we are excited to grow this new audience further, as Season 2 promises a lot more laughs and irreverent humor,” said USA Network President Chris McCumber in a statement. “We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, whose unique brand of witty, off-kilter and laugh-out-loud writing is brought to life by the immensely talented cast."
The half-hour comedy is based on the British series and follows three Chicago EMT's, played by Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley. Quite a few outstanding Chicago talents round out the cast (thanks to the good folks at Paskal Rudnicke Casting), including Maura Kidwell, Kelly O'Sullivan and Kirsten Fitzgerald.
