This past April, 17.5 million people tuned into Sawyer's original interview, which occurred before Caitlyn had introduced herself in Vanity Fair, and widely became seen as a thoughtful, eye-opening look at gender identity.

"My brain is much more female than it is male," Jenner candidly revealed at the time. "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman."

"People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male but my heart and soul and everything that I do in life is a part of me – that female side is part of me, it's who I am," she added, fighting tears. "I was not genetically born that way. As of now I have all the male parts and all that kind of stuff. In a lot of ways we’re different but we still identify as female. And that’s very hard for Bruce Jenner to say, because why? I don’t want to disappoint people."

The Hollywood Reporter first confirmed that the second interview -- which may not occur exactly one year later -- would be happening. With all that has happened in the transgender community, including Jenner's recent clarification of  comments she made in Time magazine about transgender people "passing," one wonders what, if any of the controversy, the discussion will cover.

"I think I caused a lot of hurt with this comment, and I’m truly sorry,” the 66-year-old wrote on her blog, regarding her remarks in Time. “What I was trying to say is that our world really is still a binary one, and that people who look ‘visibly transgender’ sometimes can struggle for acceptance and may be treated poorly by others. And while this may be true, it’s also something that needs to change.”
