Life has received a sentence from NBC — for a full season.

The network has ordered the back nine episodes of the quirky cop drama, giving it a full 22-episode season pick-up.

The ratings-challenged sophomore series has seen its share of timeslots so far this season, premiering on a Monday, then moving to no-man's-land Fridays, and now to Wednesdays. Its first airing at the Wednesday 9 pm slot last week produced a modest improvement on Knight Rider, perhaps enough for the Peacock to keep the faith in Life.

Are you excited about Life's longer lifespan?
