Call Me Kat follows a 39-year-old single woman named Kat, "who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that you can not have everything you want yet still be happy."

After leaving her job as a professor at the University of Louisville  she spends the money her parents set aside for her wedding to open a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky.

Based on the UK series Miranda, the show had a decently-rated freshman run.

“We are excited to renew Call Me Kat and have Mayim, Cheyenne, Swoosie, Leslie, Kyla and Julian return for their second season,” Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn said in a statement.

“Together, they share a winning chemistry that we, and viewers, adore. On behalf of everyone here at Fox, congratulations to this incredible cast and our terrific partners at Warner Bros. on delivering this season’s #1 new comedy.”

With Last Man Standing wrapping up and the fate of The Moodys to be determined, Call Me Kat is now the network's only current live-action comedy confirmed to return next season.
