The cast of The Night Shift better be getting paid overtime, because NBC just announced it has renewed the series for Season 2, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Co-creator Gabe Sachs first broke the news on Twitter Tuesday morning before eventually deleting his tweet.

The Night Shift was originally slated for a midseason debut, but NBC pushed it back to the less competitive summer schedule, and it looks like the move paid off. The series, which follows the men and women who work the overnight shift in the emergency room of San Antonio Memorial Hospital, has averaged 6.7 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic since its premiere on May 27. Airing in the prime post-America's Got Talent timeslot, the series will wrap up its first season on July 15.
