“I Am Cait” will return for a second season
Caitlyn Jenner’s life as a woman will continue to unfold in front of the cameras.
E! announced today that it has renewed the reality series I Am Cait for a second season following an eight-episode run over the summer.
‘I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation,’ Jenner said in a statement.
While the series included brief appearances by Jenner’s famous stepdaughter Kim Kardashian and ex-wife Kris Jenner, the main supporting players have been her new transgender friends that include actress Candis Cayne and author-professor Jennifer Boylan.
Jenner’s 89-year-old mother, Esther, also appeared in a few episodes and in one, had lunch with her daughter’s new transgender friends.
The first season focused a lot on Jenner’s education about the challenges transgender women – who are not in the rare privileged position of Jenner – face every day economically and emotionally.
‘Caitlyn’s story has ignited a global conversation on the transgender community on a scale that has never been seen before,’ said Jeff Olde, executive vice president of programming and development at E!.
‘We are honored Caitlyn has chosen to continue to share her ongoing story with our viewers around the world.’
The show’s first season premiere drew an impressive 2.3 million viewers then ratings leveled off after that.
Jenner has continued to appear occasionally on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
