LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – TNT has renewed the medical drama “Hawthorne” for a second season.
The cable network has ordered 10 additional episodes of the freshman show, which stars and is executive-produced by Jada Pinkett Smith. Emmy winner John Masius (“St. Elsewhere”) created the series.
For its first season, “Hawthorne,” which anchors TNT’s Tuesday original programing block at 9 p.m., is averaging 3.8 million viewers.
The second season is slated to air in 2010.
“Hawthorne” co-stars Michael Vartan, Suleka Mathew, David Julian Hirsh, Christina Moore and Hannah Hodson.
I was happy to read about this. The show got started somewhat slow for me but it’s gotten better. The first season ends next week. So I’m looking forward to season two next year.
