If you have absolutely no idea how The Rehearsal could possibly wrap up all of its loose ends in tonight's season finale, you're in luck. The shocking (and expensive) Nathan Fielder-led comedy has been renewed for another season. 

As we wonder how Nathan will take to parenting the rapidly growing Adam on his own — and about the fate of Nate's Lizard Lounge — the upcoming season will give Fielder yet another chance to get things right.

"Nathan has sparked such a lively conversation with The Rehearsal," said Amy Gravitt, HBO's executive vice president [via Variety]. "We have no idea where season two will take us, and that is the delight of this boundary-pushing show from a truly singular talent."

The news comes as questions about networking priorities hang in the air, following HBO's parent company WarnerMedia's merger with Discovery. While The Rehearsal has been lauded for being both hilarious and philosophical, anyone who's seen it can attest to how much of HBO's money Fielder is eating up. 

Beyond the Warner/Discovery merger, the show has also sparked online discussions about whether or not Fielder is "manipulating" the show's subjects, despite participants consenting to being on TV and signing waivers.

The Rehearsal's Season 1 finale will be released tonight (August 19) on HBO, streaming on Crave in Canada.
