Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘I Am Cait’ renewed for season 2
LOS ANGELES — “I Am Cait,” the docu-series starring Caitlyn Jenner, has been renewed for a second season by E!, the network announced on Thursday.
The series stars Jenner, the Olympic athlete formerly known as Bruce Jenner, living her new life as a transgender woman. The second season will premiere in 2016.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation,” Jenner tweeted on Thursday.
The new E! reality show debuted to a decent 2.7 million overall viewers in July, a number that roughly matched the average viewership of the network’s other hit reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” from the previous season.
“Caitlyn’s story has ignited a global conversation on the transgender community on a scale that has never been seen before,” Jeff Olde, EVP of programming and development at E! said in a statment. “We are honored Caitlyn has chosen to continue to share her ongoing story with our viewers around the world.”
