The U.S. FX channel has given the Toronto-shot Jay Baruchel comedy Man Seeking Woman a second-season order.

The pilot for the FXX comedy was shot in Toronto, as was the 10-episode first season for the U.S. cable network.

The Lorne Michaels executive-produced comedy gets its renewal after averaging 254,000 viewers (total) in the 18-to-34 demo over five episodes.

The first season will have its finale on March 18, with the second season of 10 new episodes debuting in 2016.

The announcement came Tuesday from Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, presidents of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions.

The Baruchel-starring U.S. comedy is an adaptation of Simon Rich’s book The Last Girlfriend on Earth.

FX shoots its Fargo TV adaptation in Alberta, and The Strain from Guillermo del Toro also in Toronto.
