They're callin' again -- already!

Nearly a month before 'Frasier' alum Kelsey Grammer makes his Starz debut in the new drama "Boss," the network announced Tuesday the second-season renewal of the series. The sophomore outing will consist of 10 episodes.

In "Boss," Grammer stars as a ruthless Chicago mayor trying to mask a deteriorating mental condition.

“With each episode, the story grew richer, and the cast continued to turn in breakthrough performances," Starz President Chris Albrecht said in a statement. "For our viewers, we felt it important to start working on the next season as soon as possible.”  

Grammer added: "It’s nice to get this vote of confidence. Good thinking, I love this show.” 

The eight-episode first season of "Boss" premieres Oct. 21. Production on the new season will begin in early 2012.
