Caitlyn Jenner is returning to the world of reality television.

After months of speculation, the 65-year-old former Olympian's E! docu-series, I Am Cait, has been renewed for a second season.

"I'm looking forward to continuing the conversation. #IAmCait," Caitlyn tweeted on Thursday. 

"Caitlyn's story has ignited a global conversation on the transgender community on a scale that has never been seen before," Jeff Olde, E! evp of programming and development, said in a statement (via The Hollywood Reporter). "We are honored Caitlyn has chosen to continue to share her ongoing evolution with our viewers around the world."

The first season of the show ran for eight episodes over the summer and documented Caitlyn's life as a transgender woman.

While scenes from the show made headlines almost weekly, its ratings weren't as impressive. According to Forbes, I Am Cait started out strong, garnering 2.7 million viewers, but by the third episode, the program was only bringing in 1.29 million viewers, nearly half of its audience since the premiere.
