NBC wants to see more of The Irrationals mind games.

The network has increased the freshman drama’s episode order by one from 10 to 11, TVLine has confirmed. (Our sister site Deadline first reported the news.) Additionally, NBC has cut the Season 2 episode order of sitcom Lopez vs. Lopez from 13 to 10.

The Irrational debuted in September on NBC and has aired seven episodes so far, with all seven filmed before the dual writers’ and actors’ strikes effectively shut down Hollywood for months. With no more completed episodes left to air, the series has been on hiatus since its Nov. 6 airing, but now that the strikes have been resolved, it’s set to go back into production next week on the four remaining Season 1 episodes.

The Irrational’s freshman season will resume Monday, Jan. 29 at 10/9c. (Check out all of NBC’s post-strike premiere dates here.) No announcement has been made yet about a possible Season 2, but Deadline says that both The Irrational and fellow new drama Found are “in serious contention” for a renewal.

Jesse L. Martin stars in The Irrational as professor Alec Mercer, who uses his expertise in human behavior to help the police solve tough cases. The supporting cast includes Maahra Hill as Alec’s ex-wife Marisa, Travina Springer as his sister Kylie and Molly Kunz and Arash DeMaxi as his grad student assistants Phoebe and Rizwan.
