The network has ordered nine episodes for season two, which is slated to air in 2013.

Tom Forman, CEO, RelativityREAL said, “You hear a lot about networks ‘taking risks,’ but so few really do it. We were thrilled when GSN truly tried something new and exciting with ‘The American Bible Challenge,’ and we couldn’t be happier that viewers responded. It’s going to be a great second season.”
Currently airing Thursdays at 8 PM ET/PT, ‘The American Bible Challenge garnered the network’s highest delivery in its 17-year history with 1.7 million total viewers for its August 23rd series premiere.
