Per Deadline, Season 7 will consist of 13 episodes much like Season 6, set to debut Summer 2019. Deadline notes the early renewal is likely due to the cast’s options coming up. Picking up the actors options and ordering Season 7 ahead of Upfronts allows the two shorter seasons to be filmed back-to-back thus reducing costs.
