TCA 2016: Docuseries on former Olympian and transgender activist set ratings records in Season 1
E! has set the premiere date for the second season of the Caitlyn Jenner docuseries “I Am Cait,” the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
In Season 2, Caitlyn is ready to have some fun and becomes more open and vulnerable to new ideas and unexplored facets of her life as a transgender woman, including dating and romance.
Caitlyn is also confronted with challenges to her belief system, as her close-knit group of friends leave no topic off limits. She is pushed to her limits when her friends don’t let go of the fact that she needs to reexamine her conservative political beliefs, her understanding of being transgender and her understanding of being a woman.
Through it all, Caitlyn strives to be the best person she can be, building even closer bonds with her friends, her community and her family.
The first season premiere of “I Am Cait” ranks as the most-watched unscripted series launch among adults 18-49 across all cable for 2015, with 2.3 million people tuning in. It was the biggest launch in over a decade in the demo for E!
The show is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions. Jenner is an executive producer, and Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins, Farnaz Farjam, Andrea Metz and Melissa Bidwell serve as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions.
The second season of “I Am Cait” premieres Sunday, March 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on E!
