Santa Monica, Calif. - Nov. 22, 2013 - Nickelodeon has ordered a second season of its hit family comedy for Nick at Nite and NickMom, Instant Mom, it was announced today by Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon's President of Content Development and Production. In addition, the series, starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict (Tia & Tamera), has also been greenlit for six additional episodes to add to its first season, bringing the season total to 26 episodes. The multi-camera, scripted half-hour series features Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman, Spin City), who already has three kids. Airing regularly on Nick at Nite Sundays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT), the series also airs on the adult-targeted NickMom comedy block on the Nick Jr. channel.

"In just a couple months since its debut, Instant Mom has resonated remarkably well with the Nick at Nite and NickMom audiences," said Hicks. "We're thrilled to witness its early success alongside See Dad Run and families enthusiastic about Tia and an undeniably charismatic cast."

Instant Mom continues to be a hit on Nick at Nite posting year over year gains with Adults 18-49 (.31/336K, +15%) and Women 18-49 (.43/237K, +23%) and drawing 1.2 million total viewers per episode, since its Sept. 29 premiere.

Sheryl Lee Ralph (Moesha) stars as Stephanie's mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie's three kids played by Sydney Park (CSI: NY), Tylen Jacob Williams and Damarr Calhoun. Instant Mom is executive-produced by Howard Michael Gould and Aaron Kaplan.
