Scrotal Recall, the British comedy whose title appears to have been conceived with the express intent of alienating potential viewers, has succeeded in spite of itself for a second season renewal.

The show follows a young single man with a newly diagnosed STD who has the unenviable task of sharing the news with a list of former sexual partners. It initially aired on Channel 4 in the UK, but Season 2 will premiere exclusively on Netflix.

It's a shrewd move on Netflix's part — though Scrotal Recall doesn't appear to have earned a wide viewership in its first season, critics were pleasantly surprised and gave it high marks (we liked it too!). A renewal might be just the tipping point to get a new crop of curious viewers on board.
