NBC Picks Up Smash for Season 2

at . Comments

NBC officially sang the praises of Smash today, renewing the Broadway production-based drama for a second season.

While ratings and critical praise for the series have dropped since its premiere, Smash remains the network's most-watched drama for 18-49-year olds. It can likely expect an uptick before season one is through, as well, when Uma Thurman stops by for a multi-episode arc.

UPDATE: Showrunner Theresa Rebeck will NOT be returning for season two.
