E! renews Kendra Wilkinson's 'Kendra' for a second season
By Christopher Rocchio, 07/23/2009
E! announced that it has renewed Kendra for a second season.
Each episode of Kendra will continue to follow former The Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson as she leaves the Playboy Mansion behind and settles down with Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett, whom she married last month.
The wedding is currently slated to air during a special hour-long first-season episode on August 9.
In addition, the couple is currently expecting their first child together in December and Wilkinson is moving to Baskett's New Jersey home so the family can be together year-round.
"We saw a marriage in Season 1 and now we are going to see Kendra navigate the unfamiliar waters of being a newlywed and a new parent all at the same time," said E! executive Lisa Berger. "We can't wait to be there with her every step of the way."
Kendra premiered last month, and the series debut averaged 2.6 million total viewers -- making it E!'s most-watched series premiere since The Anna Nicole Show in 2002. New Kendra first-season episodes continue to air in the Sundays at 10PM ET/PT.
E! will begin production on Kendra's second season in early 2010.
Kendra is produced by Prometheus Entertainment, Alta Loma Entertainment and Fox Television Studios.
