Eric McCormack’s second time on TNT seems to be the charm: The network has renewed the crime-solving drama Perception, in which he stars, for a second season.
The network has ordered 13 episodes for the show’s sophomore outing, which is slated to air in 2013. In the series, McCormack stars as Dr Daniel Pierce, a scruffy, eccentric neuroscientist and paranoid schizophrenic who helps the federal government solve difficult cases.
It’s McCormack’s second series on the network. His first, Trust Me, set inside a fictional advertising firm, was cancelled after its first season.
Perception, premiered in July to 5.6 million viewers and, according to the network, it ranks second behind TNT’s other drama, Major Crimes, among basic cable’s top new scripted series for the year to date.
*Perception airs in the UAE on OSN First HD every Tuesday at 11pm.
