HBO has ordered a third 12-episode season of Big Love - and this, just a few weeks into the series' sophomore run.

Though the polygamy-pimping drama has seen its audience wane since moving to Mondays, the inclusion of DVR viewership, Variety notes, puts its weekly sampling at around six million. Big Love is also HBO's second-highest-rated original series among women.

On the scheduling front, the final two episodes of Big Love's Season 2 will first air on Sundays - Aug. 19 and 26, at 9 pm/ET - and the encore the following Monday night.
