FX has renewed Dennis Leary series “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” for a second season, the network announced Wednesday.

The series, created by and starring Leary, will return for a 10-episode Season 2 in 2016.

“We are thrilled with Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll and it proved to one of the highest-rated new comedies on cable this year,” said Eric Schrier, president of original programming in a statement. “We thank Denis and the rest of the cast, along with Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti, for a terrific first season and look forward to indulging in more ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ in season two.”

“The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season Two,” said Leary. “In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kickass viral video out of it. Not to mention awesome Live+3s. I look forward to once again creating new episodes of television with John Landgraf’s exceptional FX team. And scoring some cool ‘Bastard Executioner’ swag.”

Leary, who also serves as writer, composer and director, executive produces with Jim Serpico. The series also stars  Elizabeth Gillies, John Corbett, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales.
