“The Inspectors” had a big week: The series was renewed for a second season and nominated for several Daytime Emmys.

CBS announced March 22 the half-hour drama will return this fall for a second season of 22 episodes.

Two days later, the series received six Daytime Emmys nominations, including acting nods for stars Jessica Lundy and Terry Serpico.

“The Inspectors” portrays a team of Postal Inspectors who investigate mail-related crimes.

The series, which aims to help the public protect themselves against fraud, is credited with raising awareness of the role of the Inspection Service.

“We’re looking forward to our second season,” said Chief Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell. “This show provides a national platform for educating consumers against fraud and other crimes that target the vulnerable and elderly across America. The show also demonstrates how the Postal Service and its employees work each day to both serve and help protect the public.”

Since its debut last fall, “The Inspectors” has received several other awards and nominations for providing educational, family-friendly programming.

CBS stations broadcast the show at varying times on Saturday mornings. The CBS Dream Team site offers local air times and past episodes.
