Jennifer Lopez has a lot to celebrate! NBC recently renewed Shades of Blue for a second season, which means Lopez will soon be returning to New York City to start filming.

“I’m super happy [about the renewal]. I was like, ‘Oh great, that was really hard. I’ll do that again!’” the 46-year-old actress-singer told ET’s Cameron Mathison at a Shades of Blue For Your Consideration event in North Hollywood, California on Thursday. “The show is so intense and the show does take a lot out of you.”

“But, it was great and I’m glad everybody really liked it and is enjoying it,” Lopez added.

With Emmy nomination voting set to begin on Monday, Lopez expressed optimism that the rookie cop drama could possibly receive some love from voters.

“It would be amazing,” Lopez said of a potential nomination. “The work that I do and being an artist for so many years, there’s always a goal when you’re a little girl, like, ‘I want to win an Oscar one day, or I want to win an Emmy, or a GRAMMY.’ But then I’ve been in the business so long, the reward is actually being able to do this for a living.”

“I really feel blessed,” she said. “All that would just be icing on the cake if it happens.”

Outside of her professional responsibilities, which includes her Las Vegas residency show, All I Have, she’s all about her children: 8-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

“They’re so big and so amazing and happy,” Lopez marveled.

And, it seems like Lopez is open to expanding her family at some point in the future.

“I wish I could have a lot more [kids],” she said. “I wish. I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me but it’s something I would love to do.”

Shades of Blue will return on NBC.
