CNBC wants another trip around the block with Jay Leno. 

“Jay Leno’s Garage,” the former “Tonight Show” host’s automotive-themed show, got a season 2 pickup, the network announced Thursday.

CNBC — which said the first season of “Garage” this fall was the network’s most-watched new program ever — has ordered up 12 episodes that will start in spring.

Leno, who retired from “Tonight” in 2014, films the show from his giant garage complex in Burbank, where he houses hundreds of vehicles.

“Garage” drew 916,000 total viewers for its Oct. 7 premiere, although the numbers have predictably tapered off since then.
