Lopez vs Lopez is coming back for a third season on NBC, but Extended Family won’t be extending its stay past one season.

The network renewed Lopez vs Lopez on Tuesday, May 7, and actress Mayan Lopez shared the news with fans on Instagram.

“Season 3!!!!!!!! I cannot thank you all enough for loving and watching Lopez vs Lopez as much as we do! THANK YOU! Thank you to our incredible writers, cast, crew… can’t wait to do it all again! Thank you NBC and Universal! WE LOVE YOU ALL! POR LA GENTE [for the people],” Mayan captioned a gallery of photos featuring the cast on Tuesday evening.

The family comedy stars George Lopez and his real-life daughter Mayan Lopez, with the comedian playing a fictionalized version of himself. The cast also includes Selenis Leyva, Matt Shively, Brice Gonzalez, and Al Madrigal.

Season 2 of the series debuted on April 2. This season the comedy has averaged 2.3 million total viewers per episode, according to Nielsen figures.

The news wasn’t as good for Extended Family. NBC canceled the series on Tuesday after one season.

The comedy followed divorced couple Jim (Jon Cryer) and Julia (Abigail Spencer), who decided  to raise their kids at the family home while taking turns staying with their offspring. The situation got more complicated for Jim when Trey (Donald Faison), the owner of his favorite sports team, won Julia’s heart.

The series premiered in December 2023 with 3.5 million total viewers, per Nielsen data. The numbers fell to an average of roughly 2.3 million viewers — the same as Lopez vs. Lopez.

In another development, NBC ordered the Reba McEntire comedy Happy’s Place to series on Tuesday.
