Monday is apparently good-news day at NBC.

On the heels of renewing “Blindspot” for a second season, the network has also extended “The Mysteries of Laura.” NBC has asked for three more episodes this season, per Deadline, bringing its total to 16.

“Laura” was the only freshman series NBC brought back for a second year this season. Because its ratings were marginal, at best, committed to only 13 episodes. The numbers haven’t improved this year — through seven episodes the show has a 1.11 same-day rating in adults 18-49 — but they have at least been consistent.

The 16-episode run should take “The Mysteries of Laura” into early 2016. NBC has a handful of new dramas on tap for the second half of the season that could fill the 8 p.m. Wednesday spot after that.
