Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘I Am Cait’ Renewed for Season 2
Caitlyn Jenner’s docu-series is getting a second season.
In a statement, Jenner, 65, said, “I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation.”
“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 the network, added. “We are honored Caitlyn has chosen to continue to share her ongoing story with our viewers around the world.”
As previously reported, Jenner will also be embarking on a multiple-city speaking tour next year through Unique Lives and Experiences, North America’s foremost women’s lecture series, entitled “Up Close and Personal.” She will reportedly stop at Toronto, Vancouver, Denver, San Fransisco, and Seattle from February 22 to March 1 to speak about her personal experience over the past year as she made transitioned to female.
“My experience over the last four months has been incredible. It turns out lots of you have friends or family members who are transgender,” Jenner wrote in a blog post in September after Season 1 of I Am Cait had ended. “I never would have had these conversations if I had not come out publicly and finally lived my truth. For so long, people—myself included—were embarrassed to talk about transgender issues and now we finally have an open dialogue happening. That’s amazing progress in and of itself.”
“I want to continue to grow as a person. In so many ways I feel like I’m a teenage girl discovering herself!” she concluded. “I’m still trying to figure out what it means to be a woman and I will continue that process. Because you know what? It’s a lot of fun!”
