E! will go ahead with a second season of “I Am Cait,” the reality show documenting the transition of the former Bruce Jenner into a woman, Caitlyn Jenner.
TVbytheNumbers reports: “The show, which debuted to a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers (in Live +3), saw its ratings cool considerably over the course of its run — the audience fell to 1.7 million toward the end of its run — but they were still good enough to earn a second season. ‘I Am Cait’ also earned critical praise for the way it handled Jenner’s story and the issues transgender people face.”
In a statement, Jeff Olde, E!’s head of programming, said: “Caitlyn’s story has ignited a global conversation on the transgender community on a scale that has never been seen before. We are honored Caitlyn has chosen to continue to share her ongoing evolution with our viewers around the world.”
The new season is due in 2016.
