Fans will still be able to curl up with a cup of coffee and a cat on their lap at Kat’s Café next year. The multi-camera comedy series Call Me Kat, which is tied in the number one new comedy spot, has been renewed for a second season on FOX.
The series is loosely based on Miranda, A BBC show created by Miranda Hart. It follows Kat Silver (Mayim Bialik) as she makes a drastic life change after her father’s passing by leaving her secure university teaching job and opens a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky. The pros are that she has the shortest commute to work since she lives above her business and she works with co-workers and friends Phil (Leslie Jordan) and Randi (Kyla Pratt). The Kat’s Café is across the street from a piano bar where her high school friend and major crush, Max (Cheyenne Jackson), works with bar owner Carter (Julian Gant) — and yes, there are karaoke nights. I need to take a moment and ask, have you heard Mayim sing? She has a fantastic voice; seriously, watch this show. Despite the criticism she gets from her mother, Sheila (Swoosie Kurtz), Kat proves that you can have a degree in math, be single in your late 30s, be a new business owner, and be purrfectly happy.
Not much is known yet about the second season, but it will be without current showrunner and writer Darlene Hunt (The Big C). But it will see the primary cast of Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story), Swoosie Kurtz (Mike & Molly), Leslie Jordan (The Cool Kids), Kyla Pratt (Recovery Road), and Julian Gant (Good Girls) returning — not to mention all the mewtastic furry cast as well.
Keep the coffee warm and see you for the paw-ty in season two of Call Me Kat.
