Nickelodeon has ordered a second season of its hit family comedy for Nick at Nite and NickMom, Instant Mom, which stars Tia Mowry-Hardrictit was announced today by Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon's President of Content Development and Production. 

In addition, the series has also been greenlit for six additional episodes to add to its first season, bringing the season total to 26 episodes. 

The scripted half-hour series features Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman), who already has three kids. The comedy follows Stephanie as she struggles to maintain some sense of her fun-loving, slightly irresponsible life while managing being a full-time stepmom.

Airing regularly on Nick at Nite Sundays at 8:30 pm (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, drawing 1.2 million total viewers per episode, since its September 29 premiere. Additionally, the series launch on NickMom that same night was the block's highest-rated premiere ever in total viewers.

Sheryl Lee Ralph stars as Stephanie's mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie's three kids played by Sydney Park, Tylen Jacob Williams and Damarr Calhoun. 

Instant Mom is executive-produced by Howard Michael Gould and Aaron Kaplan.
