theunitedstatesoftara-122908Showtime has renewed its freshman series The United States of Tara for a 12-episode second season.  The half-hour drama, starring Toni Collete as a woman with dissociative identity disorder (also referred to as multiple personality disorder) premiered with an impressive 2.67 million viewers, the best for the network since 2004, and has performed well in subsequent weeks.

“It has been pure pleasure working with Diablo Cody, Toni Collette, Steven Spielberg and everyone at Dreamworks on United States of Tara,” said Showtime entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt announcing the pickup. “This show is a perfect fit for our premium brand and we’re thrilled that critics and audiences have responded to this groundbreaking show so well. I look forward to many more alternate personalities emerging from this unique series.”

Diablo Cody will be returning as a writer and executive producer for season two, which begins production this summer for an early 2010 premiere. Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serve as executive producers.
