Cabler TV Land has ordered a second season of Fran Drescher's sitcom Happily Divorced.

“We are thrilled that our viewers embraced Happily Divorced just like they did with Hot in Cleveland,” TV Land President Larry W. Jones said in a statement announcing the 12-episode pick-up.

In the comedy, Drescher plays a florist who returns to the single life after finding out her realtor husband (played by John Michael Higgins, Best in Show) of 18 years is gay.

The series is based on Drescher's own life. In 1999, Drescher divorced her husband of 21 years, openly gay Hollywood producer Peter Marc Jacobson, whom she met in high school.

Drescher and then-husband Jacobson created and produced the long-running CBS sitcom The Nanny, which starred Drescher as Fran Fine, a Jewish working class woman from Queens who creates chaos when she lands a job looking after the children of an upper class Broadway producer in New York.

Jacobson and Drescher have reunited to co-produce Happily Divorced.

Also in the sitcom are Valente Rodriguez, who is best known for playing George Lopez's best friend in the Emmy-winning ABC comedy George Lopez, and Rita Moreno (Oz), who plays Drescher's mother, and Tichina Arnold (Everybody Hates Chris).

The sitcom averaged 2.2 million total viewers, according to the Nielsen Co.

Season two of Happily Divorced will air in the spring.
