Still The King Season 2? CMT programming chief Jayson Dinsmore has expressed optimism that the comedy drama’s solid opening ratings will be crowned with a second season renewal.
“[We’re] super-proud of the fact that our first one out of the gate, which is Still The King, really connected and had two-and-a-half million viewers in its premiere. We’re excited about the ratings, so we’re hopeful that we’ll have a second cycle.
Further talking up the show’s survival chances, Dinsmore confirmed Season 2 talks with the show’s producers, with renewal looking “a real possibility”:
“We’re talking right now to the producers. We’ve only aired once but we’re very excited. I would say this: You don’t go into these types of productions and spend this kind of money without an expectation that you’re going to get to a second cycle. We do subscribe to the belief that in such a crowded marketplace you need to allow shows the opportunity to find an audience over time. While we haven’t picked it up, I’d like to think that it’s a real possibility.”
