USA Network has renewed freshman drama “Satisfaction,” for a second season. Meanwhile, it has canceled “Rush” and has yet to announce a decision on freshman comedy “Playing House.”

USA has ordered 10 new episodes of “Satisfaction” from producers Universal Cable Productions, which will go into production next year in Atlanta.

Created by “Suits” and “Nip Tuck” alum Sean Jablonski, “Satisfaction” is a provocative drama that explores modern marriage at its midpoint. Through the lens of one couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore, “The Glades”) and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak, “The Devil Wears Prada”). It delves into their shocking and unconventional choices.

“‘Satisfaction’ sparked a cultural conversation about modern love and marriage in today’s world,” said USA Network president Chris McCumber. “We’re excited to see where Sean Jablonski takes this thought-provoking series in Season 2.”

“Satisfaction” is averaging 2.2 million total viewers (including delayed viewing), with the penultimate episode reaching a series high 2.4 million total viewers.

From writer/director Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies”) along with Fox 21, “Rush” starred Tom Ellis as a “medical fixer” who privately caters to LA’s elite. It served as the lead-in to “Satisfaction” and didn’t see quite the lift from delayed viewing that the other show earned.

Its June 17 finale earned 846,000 total viewers and a 0.4 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic.
