'Sullivan & Son' will return for a second season.

TBS has given a second season order to its freshman comedy series Sullivan & Son, according to Deadline.com. The series stars Dan Lauria (Lombardi) as a Pittsburgh pub owner and two-time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole (Blithe Spirit, Grey Gardens), as one of the bar’s "boozy cougar" regulars. The network, which debuted the Vince Vaughn-produced show to strong numbers in July, has picked up the sitcom for a 10 episode sophomore season.

Sullivan & Son stars Steve Byrne as a Manhattan attorney who ditches New York in favor of Pittsburgh, where he finds new fulfillment taking over the pub owned by his Irish-American father (Lauria) and Korean-American mother (Flower Drum Song’s Jodi Long). The series co-stars Ebersole, Owen Benjamin, Brian Doyle-Murray, Vivian Bang and Valerie Azlynn.

Lauria made his Broadway debut in 2010 as legendary football coach Vince Lombardi in Lombardi, opposite Judith Light. Ebersole won a 2007 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance as “Little” Edie/Edith Bouvier Beale in Grey Gardens. She previously won the same award in 2001 for 42nd Street. Ebersole also recurs on USA’s medical dramedy Royal Pains.
