TBS said it has ordered 10 episodes for the second season, which is slated to start in 2013.

"'Sullivan & Son' has gotten off to a strong start, quickly building its own fan base," Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement Tuesday. "We've had a great time working with Steve Byrne, Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley, Rob Long and the wonderful cast and crew of 'Sullivan & Son,' and we look forward to seeing the show continue to grow in 2013."

The ensemble cast includes Christine Ebersole, Brian Doyle-Murray, Jodi Long, Valerie Azlynn, Vivian Bang, Owen Benjamin and Dan Lauria.
