By Christopher Rocchio, 04/06/2009
Oxygen has announced it has renewed Bad Girls Club for a fourth season.
The renewal comes on the heels of the recent conclusion of Bad Girls Club's third season, which became the first Oxygen series to ever average more than one million total viewers per episode.
"Our audience has made Bad Girls Club our biggest hit ever on every screen. We're excited to give them more of what they love with the greenlight of another season," Oxygen Media programming executive Amy Introcaso-Davis said. "The series not only provides fascinating entertainment, it also allows the viewers to live vicariously through these women who love to live life on their own terms."
In addition to averaging more than one million total viewers per episode, Bad Girls Club's third-season reunion special on March 31 also became Oxygen's most-watched telecast in the cable network's history -- averaging 1.4 million total viewers and 437,000 viewers in the network's target Women 18-34 demographic.
Produced by The Real World's Bunim-Murray Productions, Bad Girls Club follows seven young women with a history of outrageous behavior as they live together in a Los Angeles mansion.
"It's not easy working with bad girls, which it shouldn't be; nevertheless we're thrilled Oxygen is giving us the chance to go toe to toe once again with women who aren't afraid to make their own rules and live their lives openly, loudly and honestly," said executive producer Jon Murray.
Oxygen is also currently casting for seven new young women to appear on Bad Girls Club's fourth season.
