USA Network’s Comedy ‘Sirens’ Renewed For Second Season

USA Network is showing comedy creators that it is willing to stick with new series while they find their legs, giving a 13-episode second-season order to freshman paramedic comedy Sirens, from Fox TV Studios, Denis Leary and Bob Fisher.

It was a slow build but the show developed a following from a loyal core audience and even showed ratings growth over its run, despite losing its Suits lead-in halfway through.
