Turner Networks on Thursday handed out a pair of renewals as part of its presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.

TBS' Angie Tribeca has been picked up for a fourth season, while TNT's Animal Kingdom has received the green light for season three.

Starring Rashida Jones — who is also an executive producer on TNT's recently renewed drama Claws — Angie Tribeca will welcome new castmember Bobby Cannavale for its 10-episode fourth season when it launches in 2018. 

Details about Cannavale's role are being kept under wraps and come after his recent arc on Netflix's Master of None and his series-regular role on the upcoming third season of USA Network's Mr. Robot.

Premiering at the top of 2016, Angie Tribeca was the first of TBS' fresh crop of acclaimed single-camera comedies under new president Kevin Reilly. The season-four renewal comes after season three experienced an 8 percent rise in ratings among adults 18-49. Studio T produces the comedy with exec producers Steve and Nancy Carell and showrunner Ira Ungerleider.

At TBS, Angie Tribeca joins originals People of Earth, The Detour, Wrecked and Search Party, which returns for season two on Nov. 19. The network also has forthcoming anthology The Guest Book and Tracy Morgan's The Last O.G.

Over at TNT, the TV adaptation of Animal Kingdom is also up in its current second season. Season three of the Warner Horizon-produced drama will launch in 2018. 

The series, starring Ellen Barkin, Scott Speedman and Shawn Hatosy, hails from executive producers John Wells (Southland), Jonathan Lisco, Christopher Chulack and Etan Frankel. Wells, along with co-exec producer Megan Martin, is also working with TNT on the pilot The Deep Mad Dark.

Animal Kingdom joins fellow TNT original dramas Good Behavior (returning Oct. 15 for season two), Major Crimes, The Librarians, The Last Ship, Claws, the recently launched Will and the forthcoming The Alienist.

"The Cody family's drama keeps bringing more and more viewers back for more," said TNT executive vp original programming Sarah Aubrey. "Animal Kingdom has earned its place among a very select group of cable dramas that continue to grow audiences thanks to superior writing and storytelling."
