FX's comedies Married and You're the Worst quietly turned into some of the biggest treats of a sluggish summer TV season, despite low ratings that could have easily led to cancellation. But today brings good news: the network has renewed both for second seasons of 13 episodes a piece. Considering the first seasons were only 10 episodes, that suggests a vote of confidence from the network.

Married, created by Andrew Gurland, stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as a long-time married couple working their way through mid-life malaise together. It also stars Brett Gelman and Jenny Slate as the couple's friends. It will be back on FX sometime next year.

You're the Worst, created by Stephen Falk, stars Chris Geere and Aya Cash as two gleeful misanthropes who strike up a casual fling and find it developing into more. The series has proved particularly popular with the 18-to-34-year-old demographic, so FX is moving it to its younger-skewing network, FXX (which you might also remember from the recent Simpsons marathon). It, too, will return sometime in 2015.

"These shows are honest, 360-degree looks at relationships and we're excited to see how they evolve," said Nick Grad, one of the network's co-presidents of original programming, in a press release.
