A&E has renewed docuseries Born This Way for Season 2, slated to premiere late 2016, the network has announced.
Elaine Frontain Bryant, exec vice president and head of programming at A&E, said of the renewal:
“We have been overwhelmed and moved by the feedback we’ve received for Born This Way from viewers, as well as people with disabilities and their family members. It’s rare to be able to present a show that changes the way we see the world; we believe ‘Born This Way’ is one of those shows.”
Exec producer Jonathan Murray, added:
“Over the course of my career, when I’ve been asked what show I was proudest of, it was always ‘The Real World.’ Now there’s a contender to that title – it’s ‘Born This Way. I am thrilled the series will return for a second season, and I want to acknowledge the invaluable support we have received from advocacy groups for the disabled, especially RespectAbility and Best Buddies International who have been tirelessly spreading the word.”
Stay tuned as we observe the future for the status of Born This Way Season 3…
