As usual, eWe are reviewing all the cancelled shows on 2011 and the renewed shows on 2011… and this one, I really was expecting it anxiously. I had no doubt in my mind about A&E renewing Breakout Kings but there´s always nice to see official confirmation.
A&E Renews Breakout Kings for second season of the show that is rated in my books as the best new scripted drama for 2011, with one of my favourite new characters, Jimmy Simpson´s Dr Lloyd Lowery, a quote machine.
This show was originally pitched to be in Fox, a network that later did not pick it up, giving way to a rescue by A&E (probably a good thing), who developed it into a very solid show, even better than some of the much hyped new shows as The Killing, The Borgias and Camelot, or at the very least in the same level.
Second season renewal order of Breakout Kings will start production later this year and is slated to air in the first quarter of 2012.
Let´s also remember this fact: Breakout Kings was the ratings record setter for the adult demo on a Drama in A&E; hence A&E renews Breakout Kings for season two, and we are all happy with it!
What do you think about A&E renewing Breakout Kings? Are you happy? Let me know in the comments section.
