Freshman series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend hasn’t yet been renewed for a second season, but creator, star, and recent Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom is optimistic.

“I’m hoping that the Golden Globe will help push us in that direction, I think it helps,” she told EW at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, where she later won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. “Writing and creating this show scratches every single creative itch I have. It is the most satisfying thing I have ever done, maybe will ever do. So the more that I can do the show, the happier I am.”

And the show almost didn’t happen, Bloom said in her Golden Globes acceptance speech: “We made a pilot for another network and they rejected it,” she said. “We got six rejections in one day and we felt like crap but we knew it was good.” So did The CW — the musical comedy’s home network — apparently.

Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend when it returns with its midseason premiere Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
