'Jeremy Kyle Show' Renewed for Season 2
The Jeremy Kyle Show has been renewed for a second season.
The syndicated talk show from Debmar-Mercury and ITV has been cleared in more than 50 percent of the U.S., including Fox stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and Houston.
“The renewals by these great station partners are a testament to Jeremy’s staying power and ability to build a long-term franchise," Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a joint statement. "He is a highly compelling host who has brought a fresh, common sense approach to American television."
Kyle launched the show six years ago in the U.K. and features the host discussing subjects ranging from dysfunctional relationships to addiction.
ITV Studios America produces the show stateside, with Debmar-Mercury on board as its distributor. ITV Studios Global Entertainment distributes the show internationally.
Debmar-Mercury's Family Feud and The Wendy Williams Show were both recently renewed for additional seasons, with FX picking up its Charlie Sheen series Anger Management.
