It took longer than expected, however fans who’ve been waiting anxiously to find out the fate of Rules of Engagement can breath a sigh of relief. CBS will be bringing back the sitcom for a seventh season. The Hollywood Reporter says CBS has ordered a 13 episode season #7 of Rules of Engagement starring David Spade, Patrick Warburton, Oliver Hudson, and Megyn Price.

The show started off strong last season with 11.5 million viewers but has lost 4 million viewers over the course of season six. Still, it’s a solid performer despite the fact the network has never settled on a permanent time slot but instead uses it to fill gaps when other shows don’t retain viewers.

CBS hasn’t indicated where they’ll plug Rules of Engagement into the 2012-2013 schedule, but we do know it’ll be a midseason debut.
