E! has renewed its popular reality series I Am Cait, which follows Caitlin Jenner on her gender transition journey, for a second season. The series has received a huge amount of attention for its coverage of the former Olympian’s gender change, which started conversations everywhere about the topic and brought transgender rights into the spotlight.
“Caitlyn’s story has ignited a global conversation on the transgender community on a scale that has never been seen before,” said Jeff Olde, the 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.”
Jenner herself also commented briefly on the renewal, saying “I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation.”
