Currently Booming: 'I Am Cait' Renewed Despite Low Ratings

While Caitlyn Jenner's official introduction was met with praise and positivity, her reality show that began airing just a few short months later garnered exactly the opposite. The first episode of I Am Cait was a ratings bonanza, but after that everyone seemed to tune out in unison. Many insiders believed that it would be a one-season deal but yesterday it was actually confirmed that E! has indeed picked up I Am Cait for a second season. 

According to a report by Radar Online, “Filming begins in November. Caitlyn was really upset about the low ratings, but she had the time of her life filming and bonding with her new friends. She knows that the show is creating a livelihood for many trans women who appear on it. This is her way of giving back. She’s still really uncomfortable discussing her sexuality,” the insider reveals."

Why do you think that the reality docuseries has been given a second season? Is it because Jenner has been such a spokesperson for the trans community, at least by normalizing the topic and creating an open dialogue? Was this show renewed in the hopes that, even if it is regularly reaching only a select few, it will somehow accomplish something really important anyway?

Did you watch the first season of I Am Cait? Do you see yourself tuning in to watch Jenner find her groove as a woman?
