NBC has renewed the summer hit "Better Late Than Never."

All five stars — William Shatner, Henry Winkler, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye — will return for the next go-round.

Season 1 followed the gang through Asia. The next venue hasn't yet been chosen.

"The success of Season 1 was such a joyous surprise,” said Winkler, also an executive producer. “I can't wait to see where Bill, Terry, George, Jeff and I will be exploring next. Anybody know where we are going??? They don't tell me anything!!!"

The stars said in the Season 1 finale that they would love to get together and travel again. "We're in good spirits because none of us kicked the bucket," Bradshaw commented.

Shatner, the oldest, will be 86 next summer. Winkler turns 71 in October. Bradhaw just turned 68; Forman has his 68th birthday in January.

The theme of the series had the four older actors enjoying new experiences on a sort of bucket list trip. Comedian Dye (he's 33) led them on adventures from enriching to merely zany.

“Better Late Than Never,” NBC said, "was the #1 new series introduced by the broadcast networks this past summer, averaging a 1.8 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 8.1 million viewers overall."
