It looks like school is out for Mr. Robinson and the celebration can begin for fans of The Carmichael Show.

NBC announced today that it was picking up its freshman comedy The Carmichael Show for a second season and cancelling Mr. Robinson after one season.

Starring Jerrod Carmichael, David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, Amber Stevens West and Lil Rel Howery, The Carmichael Show is inspired by Jerrod’s relationship with his say-anything contrarian father, his therapist-in-training girlfriend, his ever-hustling brother and his mother who is always, always, always right with Jesus.

“We’re extremely proud of THE CARMICHAEL SHOW and Jerrod’s voice and point of view is a breath of fresh air in a comedy series,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “This show made a big impact with viewers and critics because it’s funny and relatable but also because it’s fearless about discussing issues that are significant in the world today. We appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this new family comedy from the producers, cast, and crew and look forward to bringing it back to the schedule later this season.”

Although both series were pretty similar in their ratings, according to TVWise, the edge was given to The Carmichael Show because of the critical reception it received.

Mr. Robinson follows a struggling musician who has to take a job as a substitute in order to make ends meet.
